'A Place to Stand:' Ontario's unofficial anthem gets a makeover
1967 classic 'A Place to Stand' gets a new sound ahead of Canada's 150th birthday
Ontario has given its unofficial anthem a 21st century makeover.
The new song by Toronto-based indie pop band Ginger Ale and the Monowhales replaces the 1967 version, which was written for the film of the same name, A Place to Stand.
The film was featured at the Ontario pavilion at Expo 67 and won the 1967 Academy Award for best live action short.
The new version of the song A Place to Stand was officially unveiled with a live performance by Ginger Ale and the Monowhales in Ottawa on Friday.
