However, the outrage has been growing. Today the National Post chastises Judge Woolcott for suggesting that police officers not wear a poppy in her courtroom - "Respect the Poppy".
The Post makes this observation:
The judge did not make clear who she thought might consider the poppy an unacceptable symbol, or what their reasoning would be. Not that it matters: To the extent there are hateful eccentrics out there who fail to comprehend the disasters and destruction that would have befallen our world if Canadian and other allied soldiers didn't valiantly put their lives on the line, we don't see why public officials should be pandering to their sensitivities...
Madam Justice, I believe you owe the veterans in this country a sincere apology.
