[The Guardian] Canadian lawmakers have voted to change the country’s national anthem to make the lyrics gender neutral, a move that comes as the new Liberal government focuses on being more inclusive toward women.
The bill would change the English version of O Canada to remove the words “in all thy sons command” and replace them with “in all of us command”.
The changes, brought forward as a private member’s bill by a Liberal party lawmaker, passed easily in the House of Commons, which is controlled by the Liberals. It now goes to the appointed Senate, which generally approves measures passed by the elected House.
The status of women minister, Patty Hajdu, speaking before the vote, said the change was an important step toward ensuring inclusivity in Canada’s cultural symbols.
“I think it’s really important as a very strong symbol of our commitment to gender equality in this country,” she told reporters.
Some Conservative lawmakers opposed the change, which they said was being made without adequate consultation with Canadians. The former Conservative government suggested changes to the anthem’s lyrics in 2010, but backed off after a public outcry.
The song was composed in 1880 and the original lyrics were in French. The English-language version, which is not a direct translation from French, was penned in 1908 and tweaked over the years. It was adopted as Canada’s official anthem in 1980.
After the vote passed, lawmakers stood in the House of Commons and sang the anthem in both national languages.
[ZurichTimes] Oh Canada what are you doing with your nation? You got rid of Harper and then promptly went Full Feminist with Trudeau? Did you forget the old addage Never go Full Feminist? This nation’s leadership seems to have completely surrendered its sanity to the Feminists on the left and its all its Gold and Land in terms of Sovereignty to the Chinese on the right.
And as the song goes;
And I’m wondering how I’ll get down the stairs, Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right, here I am, Stuck in the middle with you, Yes I’m stuck in the middle with you, Stuck in the middle with you.
The Chinese have taken over almost the entire real estate market and are using it as a giant money laundering tool. It is about the only thing keeping the Canadian economy alive therefore the Government lackeys have no power or desire to stop it.
According to the Globe and Mail, China CITIC Bank has filed a lawsuit in Canada to try to seize the assets of a Chinese citizen the bank claims took out a $10 million loan in China then fled to Canada.
