How should the Canadian flag be hung vertically?

I was watching a Nathan for You episode where he returns to his home country of Canada and noticed some Canadian flags hanging vertically and wondered how they are supposed to be hung. The US flag is supposed to be hung vertically with the blue corner in the upper left.

A Google search said that the Canadian flag should be placed so that the "upper part of the leaf points to the left." But the extract that Google showed on the search results page showed the flag pointing the other way. On close inspection you can see a little red X on the image showing that is the wrong way to hang the flag. Their snippet just happened to pull an unfortunate part of the image.
