"Shout! Wherever You May Be I AM A CANADIAN"

The song "Shout! Wherever You May Be I AM A CANADIAN" brought patriotism directly to the living rooms of many Canadians thanks to the Happy Gang.

The Happy Gang was one of the most well-known and successful entertainment acts of the mid 20th Century in Canada, aired by the CBC. The show featured energetic live musical performances and comedy skits, and would have included renditions of songs such as "I AM A CANADIAN."

This song probably reached Canadian stores during the Battle of Britain in 1940, when the defence of the British Isles from German bombing attacks fell to fighter pilots from Britain and the Empire.
