The anthem has not always been the same. Revisions have been made to it throughout its history. In fact, in the anthem's early history there were no references to religion. There was a bill introduced in 2002 to make further changes to the anthem. Then, in 2010, the question of gender neutrality arose in parliament in regards to the anthem.

Burton is one of the forefathers of the Canadian music industry. His lyrical changes are still faithful to the anthem's earliest versions. He has always sung the anthem this way, so it should not have been a surprise.

In 1990, Toronto City Council actually voted in favor of suggesting that the federal government change the line "our home and native land" to "our home and cherished land." The anthem is not immune from modification.

Is there an official version of the anthem? If yes, did he sing it?

I could do without them in all settings. It is stupid. If you have to do it at a medal ceremony than I could be okay with that I guess. I hate singing it before games though.

I'm with ya here.

It's stupid to sing the Canadian and American national anthems in the NHL when almost 50% of the players are from Europe.

I didn't mind it. The Wife knew who they were.

I know you can't wait for Beiber but don't knock the grown-up music.
