The CNE serves as the unofficial ending of summer to some and predictably, Twitter wasn’t thrilled about the event being cancelled, even if the rationale is quite obvious.

'If there's no CNE, the summer never ends': Canada reacts to CNE's historic cancellation


The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us all to adapt to new norms, and the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) is no exception.

For the second time in its 142-year history, the CNE has been cancelled, due to the pandemic. The only other time the CNE was cancelled was during the Second World War, when the grounds were being used as a recruitment and military camp.

It’s not the only major event in Toronto that’s been cancelled by the pandemic, as the Pride Parade, Caribana (known officially as the Toronto Caribbean Carnival) live Canada Day events and other staples of the summer aren’t feasible at this juncture.

Fighting for Western Canadian Heritage: Trudeau's Minister of Heritage (a former Greenpeace activist) doesn't know what Western Canadian Heritage is. Watch me fight back.

Michelle Rempel is right - as many other things going on these day in schools as well - everything we used to know that used to be common sense and factually safe for everyone's well being is getting washed down with political gobbledygook no one can grasp anymore.

grinning I have never been to a Western stampede, though, but let people have some fun!

Recorded Live: 12/10/1976 - Capitol Theatre - Passaic, NJ

It was performances like this that won Rush such a dedicated following, which continues to pack arenas every time Rush takes to the road.
