CHP TALKS: Mark Donnelly Sings ‘O Canada’ at BC Freedom Rally

Mark Donnelly is well-known and much appreciated for using his great voice to lead the singing of ‘O Canada’ at the opening of hockey games for the Vancouver Canucks from 2001 until a few days ago. On Dec. 4, 2020, he was severed from his role by team owner, Francesco Aquilini who announced it on his Twitter feed. The reason for his sudden dismissal was his announced intention to sing the national anthem at the BC Freedom Christmas Rally held in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery on Dec. 5. At the Rally, Mark not only sang the anthem, but gave a moving speech on the importance of defending our freedoms. Later in the program, he also sang a powerful rendition of ‘O Holy Night’. This week he spoke with CHP TALKS co-hosts, Rod Taylor and Peter Vogel in a wide-ranging conversation about his family, his music, his composing and his convictions.
