Changing our national anthem strikes discord with Canadians

A member of the RCMP sings Canada's national anthem, 'O Canada.' Bill C-210, An Act to amend the National Anthem Act, was put forward by the late Mauril Bélanger. The bill, currently being debated in the Senate, would have Parliament change the lyrics of the national anthem, replacing 'in all thy sons command' with 'in all of us command.'
