A revival of Ontario’s unofficial anthem “A Place to Stand” released!

Toronto based pop rockers Ginger Ale & The Monowhales have collaborated on the revival of “A Place to Stand,” Ontario’s unofficial anthem in celebration of Ontario’s 150th anniversary as a province. Francophone artist hailing from Cornwall, Melanie Brulée collaborated on the new version, as well as recorded a French version of the tune. “The updated versions- English, French, and bilingual- are as lively and energetic as Ontario is today,” says Mary Ellen Beninger, a member of the Ontario 150 Secretariat. The original was released in 1967 and sold 50, 000 copies following its release.

Take a listen to the bilingual version above and check out more versions on the Ontario 150 website!
