Hello everyone, Happy Canada Day! To celebrate this special day, I thought I would post some of my favourite ( yes, that's a u in there ) Canadian music. I hope you will enjoy what I have chosen, and that you will share your favourite Canadian artists and songs as well.

I was one of many young people who got on a CPR train and went to see what all the fuss was about. I was part of a church youth group and it was my first time away from home. The entire train going down was full of young Canadians from all over the country and we enjoyed every minute of the trip. This song was the theme song for our centennial year:
A beautiful song that is special to all Canadians:
A Canadian classic:
Now, who are your favourite Canadian artists?
