May the Fourth: Shouldn't this have been the ministry of consumer affairs?

And now, ladies and gentlemen, an announcement from the Canadian Federal ministry of transportation:


Between this and the Stats Canada announcement regarding Wolverine's military records, it just make me feel that we have the right people running things in this country. Let's face it, it's difficult to imagine that anyone in the Trump administration* is making Star Wars jokes today.

* A little research reveals that President Trump has (apparently un-ironically) signed an executive order on religious freedom today as part of the National Day of Prayer in the United States. Hopefully that includes the countless thousands of Americans who identify as being members of the Jedi religion - countless because the US Census refuses to recognize them. Given that Jedi is the seventh largest religious group in England with over 175,000 members, and there are about ten thousand Canadians who list themselves as followers, there must be a few Americans who would like to have their faith in the Force recognized. After all, what better day to make that change, Donald?
