|Surprise on CBC yesterday Morning Oh Canada our home and native land
True patriot love in all our sons command
With glowing hearts we see thee rise
The true north strong and free
From far and wide oh Canada
We stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free
Oh Canada we stand on guard for thee
Oh Canada we stand on guard for thee.

I’m guessing the response came as a big surprise to CBC to the question :
Do you believe that the word “God” should stay in the iconic National anthem .. a part of Canadian culture?
CBC, yesterday morning, had a poll on this question. They had the highest number of responses that they have ever had for one of their polls, and the percentage was this:
the word “God” keep our Land, in the National Anthem
Now it is your turn. It is said that 86% of Canadians believe the word “God” should stay, therefore, I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a controversy about having the word “God” in the anthem!
Should the country cater to this 14%? If you agree with the 86% , pass this on.
(I received this in an email December 6, 2011 so I’m not sure when “yesterday” was.)
