NB Liberals - "NO Canada"?

And Liberals wonder why we think they're "unpatriotic"... everyone remember that little incident back in January where a New Brunswick school principal decided not ban "O Canada" in his school?

Well, it looks like it's now become a festering cancer throughout the New Brunswick school system... according to CFRB's John Moore, 40 New Brunswick schools have now decided to "opt out" of singing "O Canada" in their schools in the morning. On an interesting note that does not bode well for national unity, almost all of these schools are apparently French speaking ones.

Did a little digging, and according to Aaron Wherry at Maclean's, the New Brunswick government supposedly mandated the singing of "O Canada" after that little incident. But according to John Moore this morning on CFRB, that's not happening.

What on earth is the Graham government up to on this one? Was the singing of "O Canada" indeed mandated for all New Brunswick schools this fall? If so, why are they allowing these 40 schools to get away with defying the government's directive?

Here's a great opportunity to prove themselves... if the Liberals in New Brunswick really are as patriotic as they say they are, (hang on, anyone actually have a quote from any NB Liberals on whether or not they actually "Love Canada"?) they can stand up for this great nation of ours and ensure that their schools are continuing to foster a patriotic environment for our kids to grow up in.

I mean, we can all see how unpatriotic Canada is becoming... after all, the Liberals are putting forward an American/Brit for Prime Minister...

    Another officially bi lingual province on the move.
    They would likely be happy to sing the french national anthem.

    Perhaps its a good thing that these 40 schools choose not to sing O' Canada - the province will eventually become a wholly owned subsidiary of Quebec through the purchase of NB Power by Hydro Quebec. Might as well start the process earlier than later. Cheers.

    Christian schools sing O Canada and follow government curriculum: no funding.

    Schools run by socialist greenies don't sing O Canada for ideological reasons: lots of funding.

    Canada is screwed.

    Well, my opinion is somewhere in the middle. Maybe a compromise could be made about singing Canadian anthem about once a week? Because patriotism is nice and it seems to be dying here. In few years the only national thing will be hockey, I guess.
