Ontario Provincial Anthem, parody version

and to theft say no.

It is interesting to note that our national anthem O Canada is free and public but the provincial anthem "A Place to Stand" is copyright-restricted and locked-down for the most part, perhaps in keeping with the philosophy of privatization that plagues our province.
