In 1995 Paul and Cindy travelled on an overnight bus from Orangeville to Montreal to show support for the people of Quebec to vote NO to the Referendum.  They proudly waved their flag to show their patriotism and to let Quebec know how important Quebec was to Canada.

Paul brought this same flag to all Canada 150 Day celebrations and told the story of how he and Cindy went to Montreal in 1995 and if it weren’t for Quebec saying NO to the referendum, Canada would be a different country today.
