The latest Canadian language brew ha-ha took place earlier this week at the opening of the Calgary Stampede.
What started as a freshening up change for the 100 year old fair ended up being a politically incorrect blunder, in some eyes.
Seems officials tried a new version of the national anthem this year, both old and new were bilingual, it was not well received.
They replaced it with another version, but to expedite things, it was English only.
Things got even hotter under the summer prairie sun and brought out French speaking Albertans wondering what was going on?
Quickly the Stampede apologized for offending anyone and said they were going back to the old tried, true and accepted version.
I think this has less to do with the lack of political correctness in the west and more about just how many Canadians from Quebec have moved there.
As many have said in the past, Quebec must do something to stop the mass exodus out of that province, while there still is one.
Then ask themselves how and why it started in the first place.
