Ryan McMahon Wants To Hear A Dubstep Version Of “O Canada”
submit to reddit

When Albert Howell, Ryan McMahon and Naomi Snieckus were on Strombo's Panel they talked about updating "O Canada" to make the song more gender neutral.

"I am all for anything that Margaret Atwood supports," said Snieckus. "Including her hairdo, which is super-crazy. But I dream of that when I hit her age."

Howell pointed out that some people don't want "O Canada" updated simply because they don't like change.

"My father, he won't use a computer because he's afraid he's putting a librarian out of work," he said.

McMahon isn't just thinking about updating lyrics. 

"I'd like to see a dubstep version myself," said McMahon.
