Keep­ing Canada safe not just for sons

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: We owe our coun­try to those sons (July 11)

It’s very hard to be­lieve that in 2016 peo­ple are cling­ing to the be­lief that only “our sons” count in times of war. All of us play a role in keep­ing Canada safe and free, now and in the past. That in­cludes our daugh­ters! The writer should re­view the orig­i­nal lyrics of the an­them and see where and when it was changed over the years. In­clud­ing all “of us” in the lyrics hon­ours all who play or played a role in keep­ing Canada safe in the past, the present and the fu­ture. Mary Mar­garet Kachurowski, Hamil­ton
