    First of all, the spelling of "Canadiens" represents the Quebecois, who are French, and who have no love for the British crown. So when you say there are "lots of Canadiens who want to take back the Union Jack," by "lots," you probably mean 8 or 9 Canadiens.

    Notwithstanding this oversight most Americans would mistakingly make in good faith, a more accurate title of this thread would have been "Lots of Canadiens over the age of 85 years old want to take back Union Jack Flag." Otherwise, the issue ranks right up there in importance north of the border as Miss Watermelon Festival in Monticello FL.

    I have heard O Canada played at baseball games.

    God Save us all from such a noise.

    God Save the Queen is a lot better
