Brought tears to my eyes. Maybe the Canadians can teach the USA about patriotism and respect for our flag.

What a blessing it was to hear our neighbors to the North sing our National Anthem!

Wish we’d see more of this type of patriotism. Had we been there I would have been bawling. My husband and I are both veterans. We are so thankful for the freedoms we have. Though our nation appears on the verge of anarchy, this is still the best nation in the world and we pray for God’s grace and mercy to restore our moral compass.

I think this was fantastic! At least our great neighbors to the north of us have respect for our flag. Better than some of the citizens here! Thank you Canada!!!

As a hockey fan I always sing along to both the Canadian anthem and our anthem, but I am so disappointed in the fans attending who don’t even sing our anthem. When Canadians are in our arena they always sing along to our anthem. God bless them.

Absolutely awesome, such a wonderful gesture of true friendship and support from our Canadian neighbors to the North. To “pick up” and carry on for the singer when his microphone failed was just great, and so impressive, as was their knowledge of our anthem. I am proud to say that the Canadians are our neighbors, and have enjoyed the beauty of their country when visiting it, and the friendliness and courtesy of their residents.

It is a shame our boys weren’t able to sing along. It appeared they didn’t know the words!

Way to go, Canadians! I lived in Alberta (about halfway between Calgary and Edmonton) for three years from age 8-11. I didn’t even know the words to the Star-Spangled Banner back then! I knew O Canada and God Save the Queen because we sang them both in school regularly, but as a 1st-3rd grader in America I had never learned the words to my own national anthem; we only saluted the flag in school. I finally learned the first verse at age 12 after we had moved back to the States. Much later I also learned the words to the… Read more »

Wonderful and moving! I’m just sad to consider how few Americans know the Canadian National Anthem? What would have happened if the tables were turned? I’m sad to say that I don’t know their anthem. And this video is very humbling.

The Canadians sang because THEY COULD and didn’t have to worry about being threatened to be locked up or taken away because on and within this great continent, this is THE LAND OF THE FREE AND HOME OF THE BRAVE, Period!
