SASKATOON – Officials at TCU Place are apologizing for an incident which took place last week during a graduation ceremony at the event centre.

Grade 12 graduates from Walter Murray Collegiate packed the hall at the event centre last Friday which began with the national anthem, played over the sound system.

When it came to the line “God keep our land glorious and free” – the words were not present in the song.

People in attendance noticed the omission.

Officials say the high school didn’t provide its own version of the anthem and a sound technician at TCU Place erred by playing an old version.

TCU Place has asked employees to insure the proper version is used in the future.

Walter Murray is part of the Saskatoon Public School division.
