Top 5 reasons Canada’s “misogynistic” National Anthem should remain unchanged

Brian LilleyArchive

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.

Liberals wanting to change the anthem is just another way Trudeau wants to change Canada into his Canadastan where he is the dick-tator.

Is this song not part of Quebecs history?

Generally, the first criteria for a National Anthem is to have a nation to praise in an anthem. Canada does not meet that criteria, and hasn’t since 1968 though we came close a couple of times. So I’ll just pass on singing or humming.

For Dominion Day, I have instead found my late 1970’s ‘Republic of Western Canada’ farm hat which will be worn.

Heck, no less than Baby Doc himself said Canada was not a country and has no values.

Excellent commentary Brian Lilley!
I don’t believe there is a valid reason to change our National Anthem period!

I don’t care what they change it to. I’m going to continue singing it the way I learned it regardless of what anyone else does.

Our national anthem has been change so many times I don’t even know the words anymore… But I tell you what folks the one thing that I do know is the French version of
Oh Canada is original in its entirety right down to
“all our sons command”..
Through all the changes the French version remains the same and English Canada is left to suck a dick.!!

Leave our national anthem alone Mr. Trudeau. Since he came to power, he’s become even more arrogant & is changing everything. Whenever or wherever the anthem is sung, people rise, men remove their caps & everyone stands tall & joins in the singing. No one feels excluded, It’s only Trudeau who always wants to bring negativity where there isn’t any.

Our nat’l anthem is routed in our history. Like it or not, it is a christian history and what made us who we are as a country. The Libranos can change our history and culture and traditions when their muslim friends become the majority. In the meantime, I will not accept that they erase us.

Little trudy wants to have a Muslim chant, sung by Muslims, in French, with Russian sub-titles.
