Canada – don’t let your women down!

A Canadian woman with a flag. What's not to like?!?

I’ve written a lot on here about the many Canadians who’ve been trying to change their anthem so it mentions the country’s women as well as its men.

Well, the great news is it finally looks like a change might happen thanks to an MP called Mauril Bélanger. Here’s a piece I wrote about it for The Guardian this week.

I also suggest you go here to see a clip of Bélanger introducing the bill. Why? Because Bélanger has ALS and can hardly speak anymore. He introduced it using an iPad speech app and it’s pretty wonderful.
