That is one reason the I have written a secular version of O Canada in both languages. The English version, by the way has been changed many times (four times by its author himself) so changing it is not an assault on some holy grail. Go to [secularconnexion.ca] for the secular words.

The playing of a theist anthem or asking students to memorize a theist anthem is forcing religion on students.

The "O Canada" anthem has some very strong religious roots. It was commissioned by a Quebec Lieutenant Governor to be presented on Saint John the Baptist Day in 1880, the holiday of the patron saint of the French Canadians.

Sorry disagree with you there,,ok about religion free at schools but Singing O canada,,That is standing up for our country regardless which version you wish to sing or change the words ,It makes us proud of who we are,,All the great wars that were fought by our for fathers and relatives that lost there life in order that we can have that privledge ,I agree separating religion and state but the national anthem is just that National and all encompassing ,Sure you may have some dis agreements fine ,nobody likes 100% of anything at times, but certain instances like this one,those disagreements should be that but one does remain pround and remeber all the soldiers that perished so you have this right

We are just proposing to change the words, not abandon the anthem. We would like every person in Canadian society to be able to sing the anthem with pride and without hesitation. This is a bit of a pipe dream since some people get lathered about singing "stand on guard for thee." The words have been changed several times before.
