I happened to catch the singing of the Canadian anthem prior to the Bruins/Leafs game on Saturday night, and was taken aback when the singer substituted the line ‘all of us’ for ‘all thy sons’.
As it turns out, this is a recent change to the anthem, and having a few days to think about it, I’m all in favor. We can all be more inclusive, in all facets of our lives.
So good work, Canada. We can talk about the line that starts with ‘God’ some other time.
