Canadian Politician: We Should Recite the American Pledge of Allegiance in Schools, Too

Listen, Canada.

If there’s one thing you should have realized from watching U.S. politics, it’s that a lot of us have big plans to move up north when we’re inaugurating President Donald Trump.

The last thing you want to do is copy us. Especially when it comes to our religious rituals.

But one Ontario politician thinks Canadians ought to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in school:

“We need to find ways to be more patriotic, and this is it,” says [MPP Roy] Driver.

When asked if he had any thoughts on what the pledge may sound like,” Driver responded by saying: “I don’t see why we couldn’t just use the American pledge … it’s a perfect pledge and without changing a word, it works for the Canadian flag.”

Canada, it’s a good thing this whole show is satirical or I’d be *really* upset with you…
