Our British cousins at the large and manly website Unilad have taken notice of Canada! A story published Wednesday gave their audience a primer on Canada under Justin Trudeau, where we're "Set To Legalise Weed, Renounce Religion And Reduce Guns." Yay us!?
A biker gang protested on Parliament Hill because legal weed would eat into their illegal profits? WTF in a crumpet is Unilad talking about?
It turns out Unilad's false Hells Angels anecdote comes courtesy of a website called WorldNewsDailyReport. It looks like a real news website, but every story on it is fake. Like this one one right here:
Oh and one more thing: the Trudeau government isn't "renouncing religion."
It's true that more than half of the new ministers in cabinet chose not to say "so help me God" when taking their oath of office.
But the option to swear or "affirm" the oath has been in place for a while. The new government has no new policy or platform that could be interpreted as "renouncing religion."
So, in conclusion, Canada should remove itself from the Commonwealth.
