Revised Version Of “O Canada” To Be Heard At Olympic Games

The new gender-neutral lyrics to ”O Canada” will be on display
on the world stage at the upcoming Winter Olympics. The Canadian Olympic Committee tells The Canadian Press it has asked athletes competing in Pyeongchang, South Korea this week to sing the new words to the national anthem. The Senate last month passed Bill C-210, changing the official lyrics from ”in all thy sons command” to ”in all of us command.” Competition begins at the Winter Olympics on Wednesday, with the opening ceremonies set to be held Friday.
