The national anthem - Thou Dustiness command

Friday Update : After 68 days of careful deliberation and a mere 48 hours after its inclusion in the throne speech, "thou dustiness" gets binned, having successfully served its purpose of providing an amusing distraction from the other dust collecters in the throne speech.

According to this poll at CBC, most do not think two months off were required to consider recalibrating the gender neutrality of the national anthem :

O Canada
Our home and native land
True patriot love
Thou Dustiness command

"Thou Dustiness" is doubtless responsible for the idea of a National Monument to the Victims of Communism in the throne speech, in addition of course to the dust bunnies under your bed.
