When I first read about Canada spending $500,000,000 (yes, that’s millions) my first thought was please tell me this is not for real.

$500,000,000 to hold a year of partying to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary. Where are the intelligent people we voted for to rule our country and to make sure there was justice for all people?

How can we possibly think we should spend that kind of money on partying and celebrating when reports tell us that 1 out of 5 children in Canada are living in poverty?

Truly, can we be proud of a country that puts celebrating before feeding the poor? Where is the justice in that?
