Possibly. While the change in the anthem would be a small change, I feel it's significant to those who hope for equal recognition - I'm a big fan :)

Thanks for your input on the post - I'm very grateful that you've taken the time :)

People are so delicate about terms nowadays, gender is like buzzword now, it will blow their brains up if things dare stay the same and include only the 2 genders....for crying out loud the world is going mad

That's the thing: the anthem didn't include 2 genders... it credited its sons, only - male Canadians; Canada is made up of much more than them ;)

Good to see you, again, Sunny - I'll wish you a nice day ;)

I'd just leave it as it is. 乂ᵒ .ᴼ乂

You'd think Trudeau would have much more important things to take care of but he is a bit of a puss anyway.

Whatever Canada would like to to with their anthem is their business.

After the events of this week perhaps Justin should have inserted the word "peoplekind". Hope we vote Justin out of office before he wussifies everything in the Country.

Dar, very nice to have you on the post; It's been months since I've seen you last.

Well, okay - noted. I'm finding that there's a lot of irritation regarding the change... hopefully no senseless bloodshed over it.

I'll let you get back to your day and I'll do the same. Thanks for sharing your point of view, that's appreciated.

Will changing that destroy the song?

Oh ain't gonna lie...that is by far the stupidest thing I have ever heard a country doing. Sorry but I shouldn't have to change the way I talk so someone doesn't get butthurt because I didn't use the right PC term. I ain't ever going to change the way I talk and honestly the whole world shouldn't be forced to do so either.
