OTTAWA—Ontario is updating its unofficial anthem, A Place To Stand, A Place to Grow, for its 150th birthday celebrations in 2017.
The updated anthem mostly sticks to the original lyrics and the second verse is now in French. The jazzy drum beat, orchestra and choir were scrapped – the band used only acoustic guitars, a cajon and two singers for the live performance Friday morning.
