U.S. Rules Over Canadian Common Sense

Six Flags, corporate owner of Montreal's La Ronde Amusement Park has imposed its conservative right wing policies in Canada. Accused of raciest practices in the U.S. the company can now add Quebec to its list.
Brunaud Moise was kicked out of La Ronde for wearing Bob Marley shirt. According to La Ronde the shirt did not meet their "family friendly dress code". There with his 15 year old brother Mr. Moise was told by security guards he would have to turn his shirt inside out or leave.

Mo├»se said his brother was quiet during the meeting with La Ronde's security guards. "I told him you have to be courageous when these things happen. There has to be a change in mentality."  
(On behalf of  the staff here at NMP we would be proud to give you a New Media and Politics Tee-Shirt, just e-mail us. We can't promise you'll be able to wear it at La Ronde.)




We'll give Mr. Marley the final word
