On this day in 1980, July 1 - Canada Day - "O Canada" became that country's official national anthem, replacing "God Save the Queen." It was only the latest step in Canada's severing of constitutional ties with Great Britain. And it's a nicer song than "The Star-Spangled Banner" (which is too hard to sing!).
