The Senate couldn’t stop Justin Trudeau’s perpetual, annual tax hikes on booze from going through, but they did stop the changes to the national anthem, for now.
I was never in favour of changing the lyrics but even worse, was the sneaky way the Liberals tried to do it.
Watch as I lay out my top five reasons why it’s a good thing that this change has been stopped.
I realize the anthem has been changed before and will likely be changed again, but if we’re going to do it, let’s do it for the right reasons - not for wedge politics.
If we are going to do it, let’s engage Canadians, get their input and follow proper procedure.
And if we’re going to say that we need an inclusive national anthem, then I dare Trudeau and company to step forward and tell Francophones that the French words are not good enough anymore.
If he isn’t willing to do that then he should zip it.
