"God bless Canada"?

And another thing, to continue with the pile on...Why does Stephen Harper end most of his speeches with "God bless Canada"? Martin doesn't do this. I didn't check Layton's speeches, but it's pretty likely he doesn't either. Does this say anything about Harper? Is it his Canadianization of the "God bless America" that most American politicians use, notably W, at the end of all of their speeches? If so, I really wish he wouldn't. We don't need more religion in our politics like the efforts down south to merge church and state...so please, Mr. Harper, let's just leave it be.
