Canada is celebrating their 150th birthday by renting a giant duck from the United States.

Ontario’s government grant of $120,000 towards the renting of a giant rubber duck has received some interesting responses from across the province.

In Kapuskasing, there is a mixed bag of feelings towards the decision, Luke Hachaz says that the choice is confusing with the recent financial struggles of the area.

Debbie Poitras says the whole thing is just funny.

The response to the Ontario government’s grant for the duck has been a mixed bag of good and bad, and only time will tell how worthwhile this purchase is.
