For some, the point of reconciliation is punishment. Just ask Lisa Helps.

 

There is a bunch of chatter on twitter that Helps has organized some sort of protest for the legislature and has banned the Canadian Anthem from all festivities.  Does anyone have more on this?

Under what authority does she have to ban people from singing the national anthem?

To be fair, few people know more about being disrespectful than Lisa Helps.

The mayor did say she would prefer the City not plan activities on the Legislature lawn for Canada Day in case people want to use it for protest activity. I have not heard that she herself is planning said protest activity.

Know it all.

The CoV cannot be rid of this terrible person as mayor a moment too soon.

Remember the good old days when the Legislature lawn was reserved for lawn darts instead of protests?
