Oh Canada, it’s our national anthem. The lyrics fill our hearts with pride about this great land filled with great people. We experienced so much of this patriotism hearing our anthem played over and over again as Canadian after Canadian made it to the podium at the 2010 Winter Olympics. It’s a great song, but it got me to thinking about other songs that are quintessentially Canadian. So I polled the entire office and asked “What’s your favourite Canadian Anthem?”. Now some of these aren’t necessarily anthems but they are definitely Canadian. And all of them should be added to your Canada Day patriotic playlist this weekend. So go ahead load em up and enjoy these fine Canuck classics while you’re sitting around a fire, or on the dock sipping our brown bottled national beverage. Enjoy, Eh!
