Proposed logos for Cda's 150th birthday get mixed reviews from focus groups

OTTAWA - Proposed logos for Canada's 150th birthday are getting decidedly mixed reviews from the first Canadians to see them, with some complaining one looks too much like a hockey puck and another is too Disneyland. There were also complaints about a military theme conjured by a badge-like logo, while another retro design was slammed as too boring. Those are the impressions of nine focus groups in Chilliwack, B.C., Mississauga, Ont., and Montreal to proposed logos that the Canadian Heritage Department is shopping around to prepare for the 2017 anniversary of Confederation.
