O Canada Now Gender-Neutral

O Canada Now Gender-neutral

Canada’s national anthem will is one step close to gener neutrality.

“O Canada” was proclaimed Canada’s national anthem in 1980, one century after it was first sung in 1880. The music was composed by Calixa Lavallée.

The Senate just passed a private members bill  introduced by Liberal MP Mauril Bélanger after 18 months of debate.

“In all thy sons command” will be changed to “In all of us command”. The bill now awaits royal assent from the Governor General before it becomes law.

For Canada, we are now one further step towards a more just and tolerant society.

Perhaps President Trump and the U.S. will take note and follow our example of tolerance and inclusiveness? Who knows.

O Canada. Who are you cheering for now that all the Canadian NHL teams are out of the Playoffs?

O Canada, the Ottawa Senators were our last chance for the Stanley Cup.

With all the Canadian NHL teams out of the Playoffs who are you going to cheer for?

If we focus on Canadian content, the remaining teams (as of the March 2012 trade deadline) break down as follows:





Team                                    Canadian Players

PHX                                        17

STL                                         16

LAK                                        15

WAS                                       13

PHI                                         12

NAS                                       11

NYR                                       10

NJD                                       7

NHL  teams may list up to 22 players on their official rosters.

So if you base your decision on Canadian content then the Phoenix Coyotes would lead the pack.
