The above concerns, comments and questions are typical of people who oppose or question this initiative, the many who favour it are not reflected here.
The ratio of people who have commented that this renewed flag is a good idea to those who have opposed it, has not changed from the first public showing in Oct. '94 to the present. The ratio is 3 to 1 for it and has been consistent over the past 9 years.
Feedback has shown:
25% would oppose any change regardless if they even liked the idea.
25% would add the blue immediately just to make our flag more beautiful.
25% would add the blue once they understood the rationale behind it.
25% are undecided.
Therefore 25% would never accept, 50% could accept, and 25% are undecided. If we thought this proposal had merit and we wanted to renew the flag, the consensus would require a clear majority of 66% of Canadians to achieve it. Not an impossible proposition!
CANADA is the RED and the BLUE !
Always has been!
