Tonight, at the MLB All-Star game, a Canadian group out of Vancouver known as The Tenors changed up the lyrics to the Canadian national anthem, “O Canada.” The altered lyrics included a line in support of All Lives Matter.
The lyrics were changed from:
“With glowing hearts we see thee rise, The True North strong and free!”
“We’re all brothers and sisters, All lives matter to the great.” One dude from the group also held up an All Lives Matter sign.

What the fuck, Canada?
Here’a a short reminder of the idiocy of the All Lives Matter movement. Here’s an even shorter explanation from TK:
Of course all of us matter. No life matters more than any other. But times like this it feels like ours don't & that's why #blacklivesmatter— TK (@TKhatesyou) July 7, 2016
Why a group from Canada — Canada — would buy into this during this particular week is absolutely beyond me. I am not alone, and clearly Canadians were not in support of the group. In fact, no one was angrier about this than Canadians.
What a remarkably stupid thing to do: The Tenors changed the words of O Canada, their national anthem, at the ASG. https://t.co/CNJiS8i2Dv— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) July 13, 2016

If you've ever wondered what the Canadian term "douche canoe" means, the Tenors just gave an example
If you could go back in time and kill baby Tenors, would you? https://t.co/RWKkPbvmth— Character Flaws (@bookofloob) July 13, 2016

Thank God The Tenors chimed in and set us all straight on US race relations!! #Opera=Racism— Michael Murray (@michaelmurrayca) July 13, 2016
Can we join as a nation to ensure those idiot Tenors NEVER get another album or ticket sold ever again. As a Canadian I feel embarrassed.— Andrew Riggs (@ariggs39) July 13, 2016
