Canada is celebrating its 150th birthday in 2017 and all sorts of preparations are being made for the big shebang. But the sesquicentennial has been sullied by news that the government is being real cheap when it comes to the graphic design.

An overall terrible piece of news, if you can even call it that. I particularly enjoyed the comment section, which included such gems as:

supporting canadian students is vastly more important. Business can do business with other businesses, students need the experience. Why waste more taxpayer money paying people who, for all practical intents and purposes, should be unemployed? (Permalink)

Hold on, let me see if I understand the logic here. you think that design students need “experience” to ultimately become people you think should not have jobs?

Go fuck yourself.
