remove "God" from the Canadian National Anthem
The recent Throne Speech is promoting a change to our national athem to remove the inappropriate sexist reference to "son" There is going to be a process to determine how this best be done, as yet to be determined. In 1980 the so called Weir version was changed from a secular form to the current religious form making reference to "God"
O Canada! Our home and native land True patriot love in all thy sons command. With glowing hearts we see thee rise The True North strong and free! And stand on guard, O Canada We stand on guard for thee. O Canada, glorious and free, We stand on guard, we stand on guard for thee. O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
It is my contention that Canada has become a multicultural country and reference to an entity such as god is not appropriate. If you agree that God and Son should be removed from the anthem and replaced with something more inclusive or appropriate please sign this petition.
