Flags on Condominium Property


John Carmichael, Member of Parliament for Don Valley West recently introduced a private member's bill that prohibits any person to prevent the displaying of the national flag of Canada so long as the flag is displayed in a manner befitting this national symbol, the display is not for an improper purpose or use and the flag is not subjected to desecration.

In the event of a contravention of the legislation, the Attorney General of Canada can commence proceedings pursuant to which the Court may grant a temporary restraining order or injunction and order a person to comply with the legislation. The Court is entitled to punish any person who contravenes or fails to comply with any restraining order, injunction or other Court order by a fine in the discretion of the Court or by imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years.

The governing Conservative Party has indicated that it supports this bill.
