Doctors Didn't Wash Their Hands

On tonight's panel, George is joined by Albert Howell, Ryan McMahon and Naomi Snieckus to discuss an issue that's been causing a stir for the last couple of weeks: should the lyrics to "O Canada" revert back to their original gender-neutral form, changing "all they sons command" back to "all of us command"?

Check them out in the gallery above.
