Don't wear red and white on Canada Day, Fox and Feather bar workers told

Ottawa Pub tells staff ”no red colors are permitted” and “no face painting or Canada flags shall be worn or carried” by any employees

OTTAWA – Canada Day cheer is sweeping across the capital, but there’ll be no Canadian flags or national pride displayed at one prominent downtown pub.

Staff and patrons at the Fox and Feather in Ottawa are outraged after the pub’s owners sent out a memo forbidding servers from celebrating Canada Day.

A memo posted in the staff room and kitchen tells servers in bold, underlined text “no red colors are permitted” and “no face painting or Canada flags shall be worn or carried” by any employees at the restaurant.

Pub manager Frank Eyamie was adversarial when asked about the policy.

“Well, we don’t discuss the policies of any business with outsiders, so we’ll just leave it at that,” he said of the family business. “I don’t like discussing the in-house policies, frankly it’s none of your concern.”

"Eyamie"? If this wog doesn't like Canada, perhaps he should go back to the third world sh*t-hole that he crawled out of.

I think racist comments are not necedssary. But, I also feel that this pub has slapped Canadians in the face. Several hours before they opened there was a commemoration to the Royal Newfoundland Regiment who lost 740 of 801 troops in an ill fated battle at Beaumon Hamel in WWI. Several of the people there were aware of the insult this pub has thrown in our faces and their ignorance is now viral on the net

I for one will try to ensure that as many people are aware of this insult as I can .

Not all of us Anglos; I appreciate and embrace the unique culture that is Quebec.

I agree with you 100% and I also appreciate and embrace the unique culture that is Canada... In fact, the few extremists who post here all the time (check, they are always the same) are a minority in the anglophones of Canada. Unfortunately for all of us, they are a very loud mouthed minority !

On this Canada Day, I waved the Canadian flag because I am Canadian.

I wasn't watching the Euro Cup between Spain and Italy and waving those flags like a bunch of other so called "Canadians" - Hyphenated citizens.

I also wasn't at the Toronto Pride parade and waving a rainbow flag plus alot of other garbage.

Some Canadians just have a weird and unpatriotic way of showing patriotism on Canada Day.

I was at the 8:30 Commemoration of teh Battle of Beaumont Hamel, a WWI battle where 740 of 801 Royal Newfoundland regiment soldiers died. It was disheartening to see a pu a few minutes away not allow staff to show their pride in Canada . I for one will not ever set foot in there again. I spoke with an embarassed staff member.. She was not impressed but with job tought to get she could not speak out
Spread the word folks. As a 23 year vet of the Froces I say screw them, close on Canada Day and don;t take our money.

Maple leaf can not represent Canada.

Maple trees grow naturally only in small pieces of land in southern Ontario and Quebec etc. this area doesn't even cover 1% of Canada's total area.

a tree that grows in 1% of Canada can represent all Canada?

why don't you use a pine tree instead of a maple tree.

there are no Native grown maple trees in Western Canada. all the maple tress in Western Canada have been artificially planted.

worshiping a maple leaf flag shows you are ignorant and brainwashed, and you are also a liar expressing Canada being a country of Maples? which is entirely not true. there are actually far more maple trees in USA than Canada.

maybe you should put a Palm Tree on your flag. that would be of the same effect. you have some artificially planted plam trees in Canada, don't you?

Canada already had a flag until Pearson and his liberano gang changed it. What did they change it to?...the same colors as the liberal party logo.

oh really. i just searched for the Liberal logo, it is indeed red and white.

the Conservative party has blue in color. well, both British and French flags have blue.

Green party doesn't have any maple in its logo.
