Our anthem is under attack! Help us Save O Canada!

Liberal MP Mauril Belanger is taking umbrage to some of the lyrics found in O Canada.

It’s the inherent sexism of “all thy sons’ command” that apparently makes our national anthem the most offensive tune this side of Mr. Roboto.

Belanger intends to table a private members bill to rework the anthem’s lyrics.

I think Belanger’s on to something here, folks. And it’s not merely the male pronoun thingy. There’s tons of questionable language lurking in our anthem. 

Here just watch:

As you can tell, if Canadians concede to this outrageous attempt to change the anthem, then we would have to change all the "offensive" content in the anthem.

All that would leave us with would be meaningless dribble like my PC version "Eh Canada" the lyrics which would be as follows: 

Eh, Canada…

Our Home Depot and Native Pride Clothing kinda place

True pastry love

The sun shines on your face

Hey-hey, ho-ho, the industrial military complex has got to go!

You just can’t lose when you do the cruise

Be you small, medium or large; enjoy your stay, ’cause nobody’s in charge

Stand, sit or slither, Canada shall not wither

You just can’t lose when you do the cruise

Eh, Canada

It would be incredibly foolish to change our national anthem.

It's perfect the way it is.
