The Canada Day 150 celebrations on Parliament Hill have left a disastrous impression on Canadians. 

According to the Ottawa Citizen, a newly-released internal government survey show that satisfaction with the overall festivities plummeted from 86 per cent in 2015, to 54 per cent. 

Those taking in the festivities complained of long security lineups, poor weather and underwhelming entertainment lineup, which included Alessia Cara, Chantal Kreviazuk and Gordon Lightfoot. 

The overall satisfaction with the musical lineup fell from 83 per cent in 2015 to 51 per cent for the 2017 show.
