The Liberal government is under fire for spending $219,000 to replace Ontario’s traditional trillium logo with a drastically new version. Opposition critics are calling it a waste of money at a time when Premier Dalton McGuinty’s government is running a deficit.
Some say the new Ontario provincial logo looks more like holly than a trillium.
(Government of Ontario) The logo was introduced in 1964 and underwent small modifications in 1972, 1994 and 2002.
Other than the colour changing to green in 1994 and being switched back to black in 2002, changes to the design have been minor. The latest version eliminates the box surrounding the flower. Three abstract human figures have been added.
