The Royal Canadian Air Force veteran who was told by AXIA Property Management to remove the Canadian flag and its pole from his condo isn’t backing down.
Major Mike Mitchell, who has served in the military for 27 years and is a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force, had kept the flag in its position “since Canada Day of last year.” He thinks it’s likely the management company only filed a notice when someone complained.
The board told Mitchell that as per the Rules and Regulations “no structure or appearance shall be erected on or fastened to any unit.”
However, when Mitchell asked if he could still hang his flag up without the pole, AXIA Property Management replied, “You can find another way (if it follows guidelines of the Rules and Regulations) but it cannot be attached to the exterior of the unit.”
“It makes me feel sad that I can’t put a flag on the front of my house without someone complaining about it,” Mitchell said.
The veteran, who spent 8 months in Afghanistan, isn’t going down without a fight.
“I’m not going to back down from this,” he said. “I’m going to fight this to the very end.”
