The New American: It’s certainly no surprise in a country whose prime minister wants to raise “feminist” sons and prefers the term “peoplekind” to “mankind,” but Canada’s national anthem has now become “gender neutral.” CBC News reported on the story:
The Senate passed a bill that renders the national anthem gender neutral Wednesday [1/31] despite the entrenched opposition of some Conservative senators.
The House of Commons overwhelmingly passed a private member’s bill in 2016 that would alter the national anthem by replacing “in all thy sons command” with “in all of us command” as part of a push to strike gendered language from “O Canada.”
The bill was first introduced by Liberal MP Mauril Bélanger, who died in 2016.
… Since 1980, when “O Canada” officially became the country’s anthem, 12 bills have been introduced in the House to strip the gendered reference to “sons,” which some have argued is discriminatory. All attempts have failed until now. more …
Opinion: In 2010 then Prime Minister Stephen Harper, an Evangelical Christian, slammed the door shut on making the anthem gender-neutral.
Harper served as PM from February 6, 2006 to November 4, 2015 and was defeated by hard-left progressive Justin Trudeau, an Obama clone. Harper caught our attention with his steadfast support for Israel:
“Canada is obligated to stand up for its ally when it comes under attack from others. Not just because it is the right thing to do, but because history shows us, and the ideology of the anti-Israel mob tell us all too well, that those who threaten the existence of the Jewish people are in the longer term a threat to all of us”
Compare the statement above with current PM Trudeau’s Foreign Minister Stephane Dion on Israel:
“We’re steadfast allies and good friends, and good friends can occasionally deliver tough messages, but it’s by no means to suggest that we’re somehow retreating from any kind of support of Israel,” said Joe Pickerill, Dion’s spokesman.”
“We’re steadfast allies and good friends, and can occasionally …”, is code for a pro-Palestinian government.
