“O Canada, O Canada, who stands watch from sea to sea? Who for a lost democracy? Who for the true north strong and free? If not you then let it be me”
Singing the national anthem at any event – even at home during hockey games – is always a moment that stirs tremendous pride within me. I am Canadian and thank you William Shatner because every time I say that now, I think of you….
Canada is one of the best places on earth, in my opinion. I love it and could never make another country my home. Yet Canada has indeed,changed and maybe it’s time for a pause to reflect on where we are going.
In 2012, Priscilla Judd wrote this edgy alternative anthem. I think it says more than I ever could here in words. Agree or not, take what you like and leave the rest.
Where ever you are, I hope you stand up and sing the traditional anthem and honour our country… and if you like it, sing this one too. Happy Canada Day!
