Sheet music for On the Old Ontario Strand  

 

Victoria College
Victoria College's submission to the time capsule captures a debate surrounding the original lyrics from the college's song, "On the Old Ontario Strand" which was written and published in the late 1940's.

This heated debate was published in two issues of the VicReport. It was argued by some that the lyrics should be changed because of "murmurs of sexism" while others felt that altering the lyrics, even though times and customs had changed, would dispose of part of Vic's rich heritage.

We hope you enjoy exploring this interesting debate!
