New Canadian Anthem?

The Canadian national anthem isn't the worst anthem in the world, but it could be better. For example he American anthem has bombs and war and stuff in it, whereas ours is about standing guard. Noble, but come on... bombs! Granted war is Americas strong point, and it is always good to play to your strengths. I still think we can do better. Since we gave the United States the inspiration for its anthem (War of 1812 baby - Google it), I figure we can come up with a newer, stronger, better anthem for ourselves. Here are two suggestions for a new anthem that play to our strengths. First our massive size:

...and our national symbol (not the leaf, the other one...):

Either of these choices would be awesome to hear during a gold medal presentation, wouldn't it?
