It is boring beyond belief to continually name stuff after dead farmers and politicians. A stranger gazing down at North America sees no colour or imagination when Schools are dubbed such as D.A. Moody after a who cares about farmer then airports and roads refashioned in the image of dead Tories. . .not that there is a lot of difference between a dead Tory and a living one. . .both are equally as thrilling and gorgeous of spirit.
Canada is a rich tapestry of nations with history and flare to build an imagination with. Ottawa, of all cities, the nations capital, should reflect this; yet we stick to the old colonial tried and tediously boring names.
The world and, believe it or not, Canada too is teaming with artists, heroes and genius. Let us reflect Canada not tired politicians and farmers.
In a quiet aside, without sounding conspiracy theory alarm bells, isn’t it a little annoying that the Tories keep on naming things after mavens of their own ideology. . .as if they are the only ones in the country worthy of merit?
