Canada Changes National Anthem to Reflect Gender-Neutral Lyrics

Score one for Canadian progressives, who managed to change the country’s national anthem, “O Canada” to include more “gender neutral” lyrics.

CTVNews reports:

The House voted 225-74 in support of a bill by terminally ill MP Mauril Bélanger that will change the line “in all thy sons command” to “in all of us command.” Bélanger was present for the vote, which will send the bill to the Senate for debate and committee study. The Senate may not deal with it until Parliament returns from its summer recess.

Changing those two words has ignited an emotional debate between those who dislike any change to the lyrics of “O Canada” and those who want to see them modernized to implicitly acknowledge women.

Many Conservative MPs oppose the change, in part because they say Canadians haven’t been properly consulted. The Liberals have rushed the bill due to Bélanger’s illness, holding only one hour of committee study. Bélanger was diagnosed last fall with ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease. An ALS diagnosis is usually terminal within two to five years.

While changing a few lyrics may seem a small issue, a country’s national anthem is a living legacy to that country’s founders, and founding principles. The Left consistently seeks to rewrite history to further its current political agendas, and the same holds true for all its attempts to rewrite American history as well.
