Canadian Twitter has erupted in a wave of gloriously bad puns, Photoshop mayhem and digital eye rolling — all at the expense of Maclean’s December cover.
Powerful conservative leaders from across the country are suddenly united against Justin Trudeau’s carbon tax plan. And they’re spoiling for a fight. Meet the resistance. Read the full story by @InklessPW: https://t.co/XeO3T69ggPpic.twitter.com/6ncZD0biTJ

Entitled “The Resistance” and featuring Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe, UCP leader Jason Kenney, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer, Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister and Ontario Premier Doug Ford, this one definitely begs more questions than it answers. Not the least pressing: why can’t the “the resistance” find a decent tailor?
When the New York Times published an op-ed by an anonymous senior Trump administration official who claimed to be part of the “resistance” inside the White House, the outpouring of memes was immediate. In typical internet fashion, it found its way in everything from the Death Star to Mean Girls references.
So it’s no surprise the cover of Maclean’s found itself on the receiving end of similar treatment, after using the term (which has been used by the anti-Trump movement in the U.S.) to depict these five men who are currently positioning themselves in opposition to the Liberals’ carbon tax plan.
A favourite topic was just how much they had in common.
