Drake has become a Canadian icon. A symbol of Canuck culture punching above its weight on the world stage.

Now a group of Canadians want to make that symbolism more concrete: they want Drizzy's instant classic "Started From The Bottom" to become the new national anthem.

In a new petition, the man behind the campaign, Jazz Cartier, writes an impassioned case for Drake to become the voice of a nation.

On February 2nd, 2013, my life and the lives of others changed forever. Canadian musician, Aubrey Graham better known to the world as Drake released the monumental, "Started From The Bottom." This wasn't just any song, this was an emotion that can never be duplicated. Tears gently rolled down my face during the first seven seconds of the song and I knew this was going to be something special. Canada aside, the world has never been the same since. "Started From The Bottom", is the modern day equivalent to Michael Jacksons, "Thriller". Others may disagree, but this is my petetion [SIC] and whatever I say goes. Drake movtivated [SIC] a nation, and gave life to a city that needed its hero.

As proud Canadian, Drake should be nationally recognized for such a inspirational song. Canada as a country is shaping into its own, slowly but surely. Artists such as Bryan Adams, Celine Dione, Alanis Morissette, Shania Twain, and Michael Buble have done so much for us over the years. It is safe to say that, Canadas [SIC] first Hip Hop superstar, Drake has reached that caliber.

Help me make, "Started From The Bottom", the Canadian National Anthem because you know its [SIC] the right thing to do. I believe in you all.

How can you say no to that?

While it's obviously never going to happen, there is a potential compromise. May we suggest a new national dance? Instruction below.
