The 2016 MLB All-Star Game got off to a controversial start Tuesday night in San Diego, where one member of the Tenors – a JUNO-award winning vocal group from British Columbia – held up an ‘All Lives Matter’ sign during his group’s rendition of the Canadian national anthem, which also featured some revised lyrics.

In front of a sellout crowd at Petco Park, the pop quartet decided to take some creative liberties with ‘O Canada’, replacing the line “with glowing hearts we see thee rise/the True North strong and free” with “we’re all brothers and sisters/all lives matter to the brave.”

This has people pissed off on BOTH sides of the border.
