--July 11, 2017. The public displays of Confederation’s 150th anniversary have created an air of heightened pride among Canadian citizens. The symbol of the geometric maple leaf has found itself in virtually every corner of daily life, from street banners to lapel pins. It is even proudly branded on the microfiber wipe I’m using to dust the pollen off my computer screen. The symbolic representation of Canadian patriotism collectively compels those who bear witness to embrace their fortunate position as Canadian citizens.
