I just heard on the radio that Brandon, Manitoba is going to stop singing the National Anthem in schools ( not sure if it is all schools)
Now all things religious, being left out of schools, imo, was a good move but why would the National Anthem be a controversy?
If you are born in Canada or a new citizen, why would you not want to sing O Canada?
When I was in school , we had assembly every morning for 5 or so minutes - sang O Canada , and announcements to the whole student body were give, and prayer was offered ( which is now not done). When we hear talk that Canadians aren't patriotic enough, could it be that this is the example we are giving our kids by not paying enough attention to the National Anthem
What do you think?
