The Trudeau Liberals have quietly decided to change our national anthem.
They don’t want to debate the issue, they don’t care what Canadians think about the matter, they just want to rewrite our Canadian heritage to suit today’s politically correct environment.
The Trudeau government will change the English lyrics of O Canada from “in all thy sons command,” to the clumsy and awkward sounding “in all of us command.”
This revision to our 102-year-old anthem will supposedly make it “gender neutral.” But when asked, Canadians overwhelmingly oppose the changes.
A 2012 survey found that 78% of Canadians believed our national anthem, as it is currently written, is a great source of national pride. A 2013 survey found that only one in four Canadians support making changes.
Forget public opinion. With a majority in the House of Commons, and committees stacked with Liberal MPs, the Trudeau government has decided it will simply ram through the change without consulting Canadians.
