Think about it: is there any other situation when you'd react favourably to being told to demonstrate your patriotism before being allowed to enjoy the entertainment you'd paid so dearly for? Should we have to pledge allegiance before being allowed to enjoy the Springsteen concert? Turn and salute the flag before watching the latest blockbuster in the theatre? Sing the praises of our dear leader before the curtains open on the Broadway show? It's such an outmoded anachronism. I'm surprised more people don't refuse outright than already do.
I couldn't agree more.

I believe you mean fairies... The BC Ferries implies a pretty damn big hockey team
