At an NBA game in Utah, Canadian singer Jully Black changed the lyrics to O Canada, singing “our home on native land” instead of “our home and native land” to make a statement about Indigenous peoples. Since then, Black has been praised by the media and activists, prompting her to double down by claiming she sang the “facts.” True North’s Andrew Lawton says the ordeal demonstrates politicization is only okay if you have the “right” beliefs.

Also, with the Public Order Emergency Commission’s final report published, civil liberties advocates are saying it’s still possible for there to be some accountability for the government’s use of the Emergencies Act. Canadian Constitution Foundation litigation director Christine Van Geyn joins The Andrew Lawton Show live to talk about the report and next steps.
