MPP wants students to recite American pledge of allegiance in schools
While many Canadian school children may love our nation's flag, they're under no obligation to salute or swear to it. Well, all that may be about to change. Ontario MPP Roy Driver has a bold — and some would say un-Canadian — proposal: he wants to introduce a pledge of allegiance in Canada's schools.

"We need to find ways to be more patriotic, and this is it," says Driver.
When asked if he had any thoughts on what the pledge may sound like," Driver responded by saying: "I don't see why we couldn't just use the American pledge ... it's a perfect pledge and without changing a word, it works for the Canadian flag."
