There's a nasty rumour that the powers that be here in Canada are proposing to change the words of our national Anthem.
Apparently, some female Canadians object to the phrase "in all thy sons command".
In that case, perhaps the phrase "our home and native land" should be the next target of the revisionists?
What a load of codswallop.
Well, I'm not anyone's son (I'm a daughter), and this is not my native land (I was born in the UK), and singing those non-PC words don't worry me a tiny bit. I've been belting out O Canada for the last thirty years with no problems.
Don't the pollies in Ottawa have anything better to do to earn their outrageous salaries?
O CANADA update: Saturday March 6 2010
After a loud public outcry, the pollies have decided not to change anything. They are actually going to listen to Canadians for a change..... what a concept! If only they could manage to make all their important decisions in just two days.
