Canada Day

You’re gonna see a lot of Canadian flags today…so I thought it would be a good time to do a re-post. This was originally posted January 14, for Nepotism Thursday.

A quick little read from Ty’s brother, Brad Templeton, as to whether their father, Charles Templeton, had any top-secret involvement in the creation of the current Canadian flag.

Personally…I think the story is nonsense.  My father wouldn’t have helped design our national flag, and then kept it a secret.  It’s absolutely not in his nature to not brag.  Fun to think about, though.

Of course, Dad still killed Elvis.  That a family legend I won’t see denied.

  1. Happy Canada Day!

    I’m not seeing the link to your brother/brother-in-law’s story. Did I spend too much time in the sun today, or is there a broken link somewhere?

    Glad to hear that your Dad can’t be blamed for any role in replacing our glorious Red Ensign with that bland ‘corporate identity’! Nice family photo, btw.
