Remembrance Day message cut from TTC buses


http://www.torontosun.com/2012/11/08/remembrance-day-message-cut-from-ttc-buses

The reasoning behind it doesn't seem to fly consider how long they have been doing this and the variety of messages that are shown.

1. Red meat for the Toronto Sun faithful.

"...this perplexing punch in our veterans’ face"

I don't see the big deal; buses are for transporting people first and foremost.

If it were that important, Remembrance Day would be national holiday for everyone (other than govt., beer store and liquor store employees).

2. You make a great point...

It SHOULD be a National holiday. Of all our holidays it is the most important in my humble opinion.

You have your opinion on the issue, I don't agree based on this point: If they had never presented the message on the bus I wouldn't ask that it be placed, but once it has been placed, and they have paid homage to those who risk and lose their lives, removing it is not a positive expression of support for these veterans.

3. Buh. What were they thinking?

I don't buy the reasoning given how long they've been running myself, and past that I can see no other purpose for that other than to offend people.
