Thanks to the folks in Edmonton this eve for a kick-ass rendition of our national anthem on live TV. Paul Lorieau has been making a habit lately of turning the pre-game singing duties of O Canada over to the assembled masses at Rexall Place. It’s working. They sing it loud and proud in Oil Country, and it kind of grabs you by the heart when you see that kind of thing.
It’s amazing how often we get to see that kind of spirit from our friends in Alberta (both Edmonton and Calgary). The rest of the country could learn a thing or six from them.
