When I first heard the news about the lyric change to O Canada at an MLB All Star game, I thought it must have been a mix-up due to someone giving the wrong sheet music to an American singer.
But no. This was a purposeful mix-up initiated by one member of the Canadian music group, The Tenors.
He made the decision to mix politics with patriotism and is paying a price for it.
This episode shows why it’s never a good idea to mess with the national anthem for a political agenda.
