More on the Logo Lunacy

Liberal-land appears to be less than enchanted with the new Ontario logo design. And we're not just talking Liblogs here - even the left-leaning Globe and the socialist flagship CBC are questioning this decision!

The 'Three men in a hot tub" motif is drawing sharp criticism from all sides (CBC link has graphic). If a new design was so important, why wasn't this put to the electorate in a referendum question in the 2007 election? Another question I have heard is why didn't we get Ontario school children and college art students involved to submit possible designs, instead of giving the contract to a Liberal-friendly ad agency?

Perhaps the 'hot tub' theme has an underlying meaning: We may all need one to destress after being exposed to the McGuinty antics over the past several years.

joanne,

what is the new logo? I haven't heard about this where the heck have I been? Can you display a photo of the new logo so I too can mock Ontario's mistakes? haha

lol! Riley, just click on the CBC link on the post. I am ashamed to say that my high-tech skills have not evolved to this level yet. I did post a pic once, but I think it was a fluke that it worked. My IHTG is off gallavanting somewhere in Europe at the moment. Grrr...

Because we regularly have referendum questions attached to provincial elections?

Its only a logo, who cares...

Ok so I just checked the logo from the links you have and laughed out loud.


WOW does that ever suck. It definitely does look like three men in a hot tub.

Just a pure, hilarious logo.

Nobody might care, but man it makes Ontario look silly.

Everyone has their opinion. Personally I could care less what the Trillium looks like, it's not even on our flag for gawd sakes.

John Tory's rush to "save the trillium" is utter idiocy.
