So now the Government wants to look at a new tune for O Canada. Yesterday’s Throne Speech included a proposal to re-examine the lyrics of the national anthem including the reference to “all thy sons command”. They promised to “examine the original gender-neutral English wording of the national anthem.”
An alternative would be using part of the original 1908 poem on which the lyrics were based. It refers to “true patriot love thou dost in us command.”
What do you think? Is changing the present lyrics to ensure ”gender-neutrality” a good idea? Is this more un-needed political correctness? Is this the first step into eventually removing “God” from the national anthem?
All your thoughts are welcome!
