RE: Changing Canada's anthem
I think we should write a brand new anthem, and let "O Canada" go the way of "The Maple Leaf Forever." If you have to keep changing the lyrics, it was never that good a song in the first place.

RE: Changing Canada's anthem
Oh Canada has worked up till now despite the numerous revisions (like putting god keep our land in a song that was suppose to be totally secular)

But i'll admit your idea has merit maybe a 21 century Canada needs a 21 century song any ideasThumbsup ?

RE: Changing Canada's anthem
But please note i believe that the chances of getting all the parties provinces etc to not only agree on a new anthem but recognize it as the anthem are about as likely as likely as getting Israeli's and the Palestine's together at an all you can eat pork rib cook out complete with salad covered in bacon bits and red wine vinaigrette


Hell there are people who are still pissed off we about us changing the flag and the bill of rights and freedoms

The only good national anthem is a dead national anthem. Laugh out load They all sound like a funeral dirge with a little more brass section. I haven't heard all the national anthems of the world of course but so far the only one I've ever liked is the French anthem, La Marseillaise. And this great scene from Casablanca put it over the top for me.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Keep them complacent until they realize that they're our strategic water reserve. In 30 years we'll be building Keystone XL so we can Make America Flush Again.
