Canada Says It Will Not Fire Federal Employees For Using ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ in Correspondence

UPDATE: According to the National Post, the Canadian government said it had nothing to do with the memo that social media accounts and outlets have shared.

“Over the weekend, thousands of people shared an image online of a paper memo that appeared to be threatening Canadian civil servants with immediate dismissal if they used “let’s go Brandon” in internal communications,” the report says.

In other words, the world — and Canada — has gone so far off the rails that we all fell for it. Does this mean Canadian federal employees can still send “Let’s go Brandon”? Will any of them test it to find out?

You might think “Let’s Go Brandon” is amusing and inconsequential. However, it is no longer a reasonable thought for federal employees in the free country of Canada.

A letter captured by the Daily Wire showed a Canadian government agency informing employees it would fire them “without recourse or labor union participation” if they used any form of “Let’s Go Brandon” in their correspondence. A zero-tolerance policy, one could say.

Take a look a the reported memo:

“This is a formal notification that all government correspondence must be professional in nature and approved by department heads,” the Shared Services wrote/ When applicable all correspondence must be vetted by the PMO for framing and message prior to public disclosure or internal distribution.”

“The uses of colloquialisms or sayings with intended double meaning or offense are strictly prohibited in all means of correspondence and/or communication,” the memo continued. “Specifically, the use of the wording ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ and any variation thereof under any circumstance is banned by the Canadian Public Service.”

As Brodigan wonders, how frequently were Canadian government employees sharing or saying “Let’s Go Brandon” in communication? Must have been frequently.

Next question, is Canada more protective of Joe Biden than it is of Justin Trudeau? If so, why? These are money questions.

Here is a visual look at the memo:

Not terrifying, but hilarious.
