Canadian talent should be showcased front and centre
U2 is many things, including a talented band loved by millions of people around the world.
One thing U2 isn’t however, is a Canadian band.
So it’s quite odd that the government is promoting U2 members Bono and The Edge as headliners for the upcoming Canada Day Celebrations on Parliament Hill.
Here’s a tweet from Canadian Heritage Minister Melanie Joly:

You would think that of all the Canadian bands available, the government, and the Heritage Minister no less, could find and promote Canadian talent to headline the event.
We can imagine that there is also a cost to taxpayers here, and even if there wasn’t, the idea of showcasing a non-Canadian band on the celebration of our nation’s 150th birthday should have been considered a non-starter.
The Canada 150 celebration is a chance to promote the wide range of talent we have in our country. That should be the focus, not promoting a celebrity band from another country.
It’s also hard not to see a political message in the choice of Bono, who pushes the same open borders messaging as Trudeau and most celebrities. Of course, those same celebrities live behind walls and layers of private security, but they deny the rest of us that same protection.
Considering the way Trudeau politicizes everything, it wouldn’t be surprising if he and his government used Canada 150 as a way to push their political agenda rather than celebrate our country.

The elites want to hide their many failures behind political correctness, deception, and manipulation. We need to push back and spread the truth.
