Same Words, Different Tune

This just in from Alberta (where Ezra Levant was originally “prosecuted” by the HRC), re mooted change of license plate motto: “The statement of Strong and Free just does not sit with our way of life in Alberta. We are great people and not aggressive like the saying would infer,” Margaret Maki, an Edmonton receptionist, said as soon as she heard the slogan she called “definitely American.”… “It’s more American in my view. I can’t relate to Strong and Free,” Liberal transportation critic Darshan Kang said.” Maki apparently is unaware that the contentious words are from Canada's national anthem. Also, note Maki’s faulty usage: what’s the real “inference:” Statist=Stupid?
