Jacob Hoggard (lead singer of Hedley) had the honour of singing ‘O Canada’ on Thursday night at Toronto’s BMO Field for the CFL season opener between the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Toronto Argonauts.
When he sang, “in of us command” instead of “in all thy sons command”, it stirred reaction in the stands and online. Watch the video of the performance below. (Sorry for the no so great audio quality)
Some of the tweets after the anthem…

The final vote on Bill C-210 for making the lyrics to make ‘O Canada’ gender neutral was passed earlier this month.
