Ontario’s Parliament Wants An Apology From Dwyane Wade For Disrespecting Their Anthem
Looks like Miami Heat G Dwyane Wade has upset Canadians everywhere when he decided to get more practice shots up as the Canadian National Anthem was going on before Game 3.
Toronto city Councillor Norm Kelly took to Twitter and said this:

Mike Colle, member of provincial parliament emailed NBA commissioner Adam Silver and demanded that Wade deliver an apology for his actions.
“As an elected member of Ontario’s Provincial Parliament in Toronto I am most disturbed by Mr. Dwayne (sic) Wade’s total disrespect for our National Anthem shown prior to last night’s game. (May 8). On behalf of many Canadians and my constituents who respect Mr. Wade as an exceptional athlete who love basketball I ask you as NBA Commissioner to formally seek a public apology from Mr. Wade whom I’m sure regrets his mistake.
Thank you for your hoped immediate attention to this urgent matter. I’m certain that similar disrespect for the American Anthem would not be tolerated.”
