Another Failed Attempt At Changing "O Canada"

The original language of "O Canada" was French and more "gender-neutral" but it was also more Catholic. Would Councilwoman Ramkhalawansingh prefer that?

An interim Toronto city councillor is seeking to make her mark on the country by reviving a stalled campaign that would change the lyrics of “O Canada” to a gender-neutral form.

Ceta Ramkhalawansingh, who was named an interim city councillor in July after Adam Vaughan stepped down to run federally for the Liberal Party of Canada, will introduce a motion at a Monday council meeting seeking to have Toronto council request that the federal government change the lyrics to "O Canada"

Canada: we don't care what wags think.
