Oh, Canada…

It’s not bad enough that we keep changing the words to our anthem – now we just don’t want to SING it.

*weeps for the future of the country*

  1. What the fuck. Why would anyone complain about them playing the national anthem? Okay, you don’t want your kids to sing it? That’s one thing. I went through all of high school standing respectfully (but silent, and not facing the flag) for the Pledge of Allegiance. No issues with that. But for parents to want them to *stop*? UGH. What the fuck is wrong with these people? It’s completely harmless. Playing the national anthem isn’t going to make your kids into turbo militant patriots, for christ’s sake.
    *bangs head against nearest wall*

  3. ….what the hell??
    i absolutely fail to understand, how singing the national anthem interferes with “the needs of students”. ffs!
    i grew up in canada, toronto specifically, but am also of indo-canadian descent. and i love the national anthem. i loved singing it all those years throughout my school life, and quite missed it during high school, when it wasn’t cool to sing it (the school just played an instrumental version, lol).
    this makes me really sad. i’m trying to understand what concerns a parent could possibly have – its not a crime to be patriotic! (just nationalistic, lol.) you should love and be proud of the nation you grow up in, where you live and exist, no matter where you came from… my first thought was, was it the immigrant families who complained? but the article didn’t say if that was the case… and why would it be?
    i don’t understand.
