Canada has “hate" speech/crimes laws and regulations and Canadian Christians, along with other people of faith, are being vehemently persecuted for speaking out publicly against the acceptance and promotion of homosexuality within their own country.

Canada may be unique as a nation that has two official national anthems.

O Canada was proclaimed to be Canada's official anthem on July 1, 1980 (July 1 being Canada Day).

And what I find significant about the Air Canada announcement is their choice of the newest, most current members of the 777 and 787 families, including the 777-200LR, 777-300ER and the 777 Freighter.
