Canada’s Senate passed a bill this week that changes a line in “O Canada” in a step that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said was “another positive step towards gender equality.” CBC News reports. This is the first time a proposal to change the language in the anthem has been successful.

The change: "O Canada! / Our home and native land! / True patriot love in all thy sons command" will now read "True patriot love in all of us command"
