    These questions were written to be asked in Toronto on 2011-05-30,

    * Game 3, Round 7 - Canadiana Arts - Canadian Artists

    Please see the 2-page handout at:

    http://www.eskimo.com/~scs/msb/g3r7/arts.pdf

    We give you the name of a canonical Canadian artist; you give the
    letter of the work by that artist.

    This is embarrassing. If you compare the answers I'm giving this
    time to the ones from when I posted this round in 2012, you'll find
    that *all* of them are different. I think that if all of the expected
    answers had been wrong in the original game, someone would certainly
    have noticed, so I guess the error must have been mine, somehow,
    when constructing the online version of the round to use here in 2012.
    (I don't remember exactly how the Mods supplied the handout images to me.)

    And what was the error? All of the picture letters were transposed
    between pages 1 and 2 of the handout! For example, the expected
    answers of B for Tom Thomson and N for Bill Reid were interchanged.
    It's as if the answers A-X had been transformed by rot12 (not 13).
    Sheesh! And delayed apologies to everyone who played in 2012 and
    was misscored.

    1. Emily Carr.

    J.

    2. Tom Thomson.

    B.

    3. Norval Morriseau.

    F.

    4. Lawren Harris.

    E.

    5. Alex Colville.

    G.

    6. William Kurelek.

    K.

    7. Paul Peel.

    R.

    8. Kenojuak Ashevak.

    Q.

    9. David Milne.

    M.

    10. J.E.H. MacDonald.

    W.

    So this round never happened.

    So there were 14 decoys. If you like, decode the rot13 for the
    names of the other artists and give the corresponding picture
    letters for fun, but for no points.

    As in 2012, nobody tried these; I'll just present the answers as
    a table.
    11. William Berczy. D.
    12. Jack Bush. X.
    13. Jack Chambers. L.
    14. Benjamin Chee Chee. T.
    15. Greg Curnoe. S.

    * Game 3, Round 8 - Canadiana - Oh, Canada

    All questions deal with our national anthem.

    1. Within five years, when did "O Canada" officially become the
    national anthem of Canada?

    1980 (accepting 1975-85), 100 years after its first public
    performance. Nobody came within 5 years, so I accepted answers
    within a 10-year leeway as almost correct. So: 1 for Dan.

    2. Please decode the rot13 after you have finished with the
    previous question. The official version of the anthem approved
    by the National Anthem Act included two changes to the English
    lyrics penned 72 years earlier by Robert Stanley Weir. One of
    his repetitive lines "And stand on guard" was changed to "From
    far and wide". One of his redundant "O Canada"s was also,
    somewhat controversially, changed -- to what?

    "God keep our land". 4 for Joshua.

    3. The 2010 Throne Speech, delivered by Governor-General MichaŽlle
    Jean, proposed changing another of the lyrics of "O Canada".
    The ensuing uproar led Stephen Harper's government to withdraw
    the proposal only two days later. What was the offending lyric?

    "In all thy sons command" (deemed sexist). 4 for Joshua.

    While updating the round in 2021 I was surprised to learn for
    the first time that this line dates only from 1913: Robert Weir
    originally wrote it in 1908 as "thou dost in us command". Anyway,
    Justin Trudeau's government changed the line in 2018 to "in all of
    us command". Fixed!

    4. Who composed the music for "O Canada"?

    Calixa Lavallťe.

    5. Canada's oldest independent record label, home since 1969
    to artists including Bruce Cockburn, Randy Bachman, Lighthouse,
    Rough Trade, and Murray McLauchlan, takes its name from a phrase
    that appears in the national anthem. Name the record label.

    True North Records.

    6. Please decode the rot13 after you have finished with the
    previous question. Which Victorian poet coined the phrase
    "true north" in reference to Canada? It appears in his poem
    cycle "The Idylls of the King".

    Alfred Lord Tennyson. 4 for, er, everyone -- Dan and Joshua.

    By "true" he meant "steadfast" or "loyal". To Britain, that is.

    7. The motto of the """Canadian Forces Land Force Command"""
    """is""" "Vigilamus pro te", a translation into Latin of which
    line from "O Canada"? Exact wording from the song required.

    "We stand on guard for thee." (Still true, but the name of the
    force has reverted to "Canadian Army".) 4 for Joshua.

    8. On the October 18, 2002, before the second game of the World
    Series between Toronto and Atlanta, a US military honor guard
    committed an embarrassing faux pas during the singing of
    "O Canada". What did they do wrong?

    Carried the Canadian flag upside-down. 4 for Dan.

    9. Name the singer whose inspiring bilingual rendition of "O Canada"
    was heard before Montreal Canadiens, Expos, and Alouettes games
    through the 1970s.

    Roger Doucet.

    10. Name the singer whose "jazzy" rendition of "O Canada" to open
    the Vancouver Olympics produced mixed reactions.

    Nikki Yanofsky.

    One of the more notable things about "O Canada" that didn't come
    up in this round is that the French words (by Sir Adolphe-Basile
    Routhier) and the English ones (original version by Weir, with minor
    changes later) were not only written independently, they also say
    quite different things. The French version contains two religious
    references in 9 lines and talks about Canada protecting its people,
    while Weir's words were entirely non-religious (until <answer 2>
    happened, that is) and the protecting goes the other way. Look:

    O Canada! Our home and native | O Canada! Land of our
    land! | forefathers.
    True patriot love in all thy sons | Thy brow is garlanded with glorious
    command. | flowers.
    With glowing hearts we see thee | As thy arm knows how to wield
    rise, | the sword,
    The True North, strong and free! | So it can carry the cross.
    And stand on guard, O Canada, | Thy history is an epic
    We stand on guard for thee. | Of the most brilliant exploits.

    O Canada, glorious and free! | And thy valor, steeped in faith,
    We stand on guard, we stand on | Will protect our homes and our
    guard for thee. | rights
    O Canada, we stand on guard | Will protect our homes and our
    for thee! | rights.

    (Pre-1980 version.) (My translation.)
