Canucks’ Anthem Singer Fired For Pushing Back at COVID Rules

Mark Donnelly, Vancouver Canucks’ popular “O Canada” singer, was fired for standing up against the COVID-19 restrictions, says TSN.

Donnelly’s performance at Saturday’s Christmas Freedom Rally in Vancouver, where hundreds of attendees protested restrictions imposed by B.C.’s provincial health officer, preceded a classy firing from the Canucks’ owner’s Twitter account:

Donnelly, who has been publicly associated with the Canucks since 2001, said he hasn’t spoken to Aquilini but would’ve preferred a phone call over the hashtag. Seems reasonable, no?

Donnelly told the crowd, many of whom weren’t wearing masks, he questioned the “draconian lockdown protocols.” Thus, he wanted to join and sing the anthem at the event.

“What was originally sold as 15-day hunkering down sprint for the common good has turned into a 10-month marathon from hell, where the finish line is constantly being moved further into the distance,” Donnelly goes on.

Adding, “as someone known for singing our great national anthem, I’m standing up against what I feel is tyranny, plain and simple,” which led to cheers from the crowd.

Anyway, a challenge has been issued to the wokest owners in sports. Who could top that? We are looking at you, Mark Cuban.

At least it was not “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Supporting that could get you fired online, too.

  1. I get this is Canada, but I could see it happening in the US too. We’ve gone from political correctness to “hate speech” hysteria to “misinformation” claims coming from media outlets themselves. First Amendment protection for Kaepernick and all other woke athletes is non-existent if you’re REALLY speaking truth to power.
    Then the turds of the left rush to defend their overlords and declare “Aha, but there are consequences,” after which they and their mob slobs set about crushing you. Completely unacceptable how few people can handle like adults anymore any differences of opinion.

  2. That anthem singer is the brave one we should all admire. It’s not anybody out burning businesses in black masks, screaming at the sky, calling to defund police, or wearing their stupid mask like a dutiful lemming that’s admirable. It’s people calling BS on a lie that masks remotely help at all. I recommend strongly anyone curious in Covid science should read Alex Berenson’s Untold Truths of COVID-19: Masks. That’s about the only place you’ll find “science” from a journalist regarding covid.
