Veteran defends Canadian flag

To the Editor,

Flags will remain at half-mast until agreement is reached with Indigenous leaders: Trudeau
This is not a just cause to keep our nation’s flag at half mast, as decreed by the Prime Minister.
Our Canadian flag must be free and re-hoisted to full mast. It must not be used as a bargaining chip.
This shows a lack of respect for our nation’s symbol.
Flags are a representation of honour and pride for Canada and Canadians. Flags should always be treated with respect and displayed in a dignified manner. For the flag is a symbol of national unity and how we treat our symbol is a reflection of  ourselves.
