Canada’s Purple Shirt Problem

The problem with purple shirts in Canada since the formation of the Maxime Bernier People’s Party – is that they are claiming to be a purple wave; with the royal association of the colour and the political association of parties that call themselves people’s parties who deem themselves elite

which results in the need for people such as Brittany McMillan

because of the political party, I no longer wear purple shirts

I wear orange instead
