Liberal

Mr. MACKENZIE KING:

There is no law recognizing the national anthem; it is a question of convention and custom.

As a member of the British commonwealth of nations, Canada is using, as a national anthem, and will continue to use "God Save the King". As is the case with other members of the commonwealth, another anthem with particular reference to the country itself has also been sanctioned by custom and usage in Canada, namely, "0 Canada".
