So, the Conservative Party needs to tap into that patriotic spirit a little - by creating a crisis where there isn't one.
CBC, O Canada Lyrics to be reviewed:
Parliament is to be asked to review the "original gender-neutral wording of the national anthem," says the throne speech delivered by Gov. Gen. Michaëlle Jean on Wednesday.This will charge up the Conservative base as another attack by the politically correct elite on one of Canada's sacred insititutions. Stephen Harper will be able to unmuzzle the less refined of his caucus to defend Canada all the while, maintaining a calm, cool exterior - "let Parliament do its work".
There's a Facebook group too about keeping the lyrics to O Canada the same. I could have sworn it started before the announcement during the throne speech. I wonder if there will be rallies ...
It's transparent. It's disgusting.
I only hope Canadians see it for what it is.
