Canada To Make National Anthem Gender Neutral

The Canada Senate last night voted to adopt gender-neutral language in the country’s national anthem, reports Gay Star News.

O Canada was written in 1908 by Robert Stanley Weir, but only adopted as the national anthem in 1980.

The debated line in question currently reads: ‘True patriot in all thy sons command.’

The approved legislation – opposed by some Conservative Senators – will replace this with ‘True patriot in all of us command.’
