Mr. Trudeau, Mr. Horgan, Drs. Tam and Henry,
For the past two years, I have flown Canadian flags on my property to show my love for this country, and to remind my fellow citizens that we all share a common bond that is stronger than any differences we may experience. About three months ago, someone stole one of my flags from my fence by cutting the zip ties by which it was attached. On Sunday morning, we woke up to the other flag that had been attached to the fence lying in tatters on our lane. It had been ripped, as well as cut in half. A neighbour’s security camera captured the perpetrator, a man walking down our road who is clearly triggered by the concept of freedom.
For the past two years, each of you has worked tirelessly to sow division between Canadians, vilify the non-compliant, and blame innocent, healthy people for your tyrannical diktats, and to that end, each of you should be ashamed at your role in creating a society in which people (a) hate our national flag, and (b) feel triggered enough by someone else’s love of this country that they feel entitled to commit a hate crime against them.
I filed a complaint with the Kelowna RCMP this morning, but am cc’ing the BC RCMP on this email too. Please accept this as my complaint that the addressees of this email have incited hatred and violence against my family which has resulted in theft and destruction of property.
You will be pleased to hear that I had an extra flag in my car, which is now hanging on my fence; you have not broken me, nor have you broken the millions of other Canadians just like me, who have endured your systemic abuse and discrimination but are still able to turn the other cheek. To quote Mr. Henley, I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul.
And, a reminder that more than 6,000,000 Canadians are still waiting for any scientific justification for your continued Charter violations, which are especially laughable in light of the fact that you have granted unvaccinated foreign nationals more travel privileges than taxpaying citizens. BC RCMP: perhaps now would be a good time to start enforcing the laws of this beautiful land?
You should all be thoroughly ashamed for your treasonous acts against your fellow Canadians.

Thank you for copying me onto your email to the Prime Minister, BC’s Premier, and both the Provincial and Federal Health Officers Henry and Tam,
With regards to this matter, it is certainly unacceptable that an individual would go so far as to steal and deface your Canadian flag, which should be looked to as a symbol of national unity. I see you have notified the Kelowna RCMP and I trust that they will provide you with information on this law enforcement matter.
Please know that the division and anger that has been stoked by this Prime Minister and his government on the federal level is something that we in the Official Opposition are well aware of and we have called it out on numerous occasions. Through our many instances of correspondence, I know that I have mentioned this to you before. Please know that we in the Official Opposition are against the practice of pitting neighbour against neighbour and will not aim to sow division in Canada, as this current federal government has made a habit of doing.
Do you need a new Canadian flag? I’ve got high quality ones from Ottawa that are to be flown outside on flag poles. Please let me know if you do, and my team can coordinate getting one to you.
Thank you again for your email and stay well.
In your service,
Member of Parliament (Kelowna-Lake Country)
Shadow Minister for Small Business Recovery and Growth
