... you cannot put two flags on the same flag pole in Canada, what they are suggesting isn't legal ...
There's a protocol out there, but no legislation: "... The manner in which flags may be displayed in Canada is not governed by any legislation but by established practice. The etiquette outlined in this section is a version of international usage and of customs the federal government has been observing for many years ..." That said ....
... where does it stop with the orange flags, is it just the peace tower, is it just government buildings ...
The devil is, indeed, in the details. We'll have to see over the next while.

Also, for a bit more of the story, this from the National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations

. . . what they are suggesting isn't legal . . .

The only Canadian law pertaining to the display of the flag is the National Flag of Canada Act. And it's only requirement is

Displaying flag
2 (1) All Canadians are encouraged to proudly display the National Flag of Canada in accordance with flag protocol.

Allowing display
(2) Every person who is in control of an apartment building, a condominium building or building in divided co-ownership or another multiple-residence building or a gated community is encouraged to allow the National Flag of Canada to be displayed in accordance with flag protocol.

people going to be told that they can't wear their job wings anymore because that space is being taken up by one of those flags?
I'm not sure what you're getting at.

In a media statement, AFN National Chief RoseAnne Archibald called on the government to raise the flags that have flown at half-mast for months and "attach the 'Every Child Matters' orange flag to the Peace Tower and on all federal buildings starting November 7."
It seems pretty clear what the AFN is asking for - federal buildings.

Let's just hope that HRH (Gawd Bless 'Er) hangs in there until at least Nov 12th then.
Huzzah…the survey polls win again to this social-media guided government of ours…. 🙄

Looks like veterans and other Canadians keen to honour Canadian service members owe Chief Archibald and Prime Minister Trudeau a big thank you.

That's HM, not HRH. HRH is the other members of the Royal Family.

The only thing the Prime Minister can do to honour Canadian veterans and serving members is to stay out of the way.

But if it wasn't for Trudeau we wouldn't be allowed to raise the flag in order to be allowed lower it on 11 Nov.
