A landmark decision from the House of Commons.
Members of Parliament have voted to change the lyrics of the national anthem – to make the song gender neutral.
Bill C-21 would change the second line of O Canada from “True patriot love, in all thy SONS command,” to ..”In all of US command.”
The motion passed third and final reading by a margin of 225-74.
The legislation still requires the approval of the Senate.
