They're Canadians. Their biggest problems consist of of stopping the maple syrup mafia, winning curling and hockey at the Olympics, and figuring out completely new ways to apologize.

Actually our biggest issues are the electoral system, moving away from our oil based economy and climate change, but the current government as no intention to do anything on the first one, and the two others the liberals are being counterproductive on both issues by trying to please to both sides, like most centrists tend to do.

I know such Canadians. It can be said that I'm kinda surrounded by them. But one of'em can swear quite well that even a whore from the streets of Calcutta would deeply be shocked to become a holy belieber. He excuses his cursing with ... that his mom is from Texas.

That seems to be a fundamental prob with politicians. Sometimes being less polite, but making strict announcements, is the better way. Even though many may hurtly feel kicked in their butts or such.

Since I was old enough to understand it, I always found it weird that God would be mention in the national anthem, it as nothing to do with the thing becoming a political issue.

@PlasmaHam Like I said at the beginning the song as been changed multiple times and the current versions is not even close to the originals.
Again with running the conversation in circles. As I have already said, anthems are historic songs. So unless you are suggesting we rewrite it every 10 yrs or so it is inappropriate to make changes.

Why is it so inappropriate to make changes when we already have made changes on multiple occasions?

If it was up to me, we never would have made any changes. I can't say that I agree with any of the changes that have previously been made. In this case, even as a Liberal Party member, it seems like the changes are being made because politicians create these issues as a way of displaying their personal beliefs and for publicity reasons.
