I'm not convinced this would work in Montreal. Just a few years ago, a lot of people weren't even standing for the anthem. And a lot of people still think singing the anthems before games is a stupid idea. I don't know if some of you remember but in the early 1990s, the Expos started to play the anthems in the afternoon, when the stadium was empty, to avoid people booing the Canadian anthem. Like it or not, Montreal is not like English Canada and a lot of people, myself included, would consider it pretty lame to do like in Edmonton. Not that I don't like my country, I'm just not a fan of overwhelming patriotism.
