New Brunswick has passed legislation to ensure that the province’s schools play O Canada daily. In February, it was revealed that a N.B. principal had relegated the singing of the national anthem to special occasions due to religious concerns, sparking a national controversy. The principal of Belleisle Elementary School, Erik Millett, bore the brunt of the backlash, which included death threats. He later resigned.
