Don Cherry and Wounded Warriors Working Together

October 3, 2008

Thanks to the good people at the Wounded Warriors Fund, our wounded Canadian soldiers are having some of their basic needs taken care of. When a soldier is wounded he often goes from the battlefield to the hospital in Germany, leaving all belongings behind. This organization tries to smooth over the difficult transition and more. 

It is interesting to see that the official spokesperson for this organization is none other than Don Cherry himself. Cherry is an outspoken patriot who often reminds us of the sacrifices made by our soldiers on his regular Hockey Night In Canada program called Coach’s Corner.

You can learn more about this funding program and what they do by going to;

God Bless them all.

Canadian Music; More Than You Know

September 30, 2008
A popular Canadian Group

Like most people I am aware that there have been many Canadian success stories in the music industry in many different genres. The likes of Bryan Adams, Shania Twain, Burton Cummings and Celine Dion are household names and to most Canadians, are known to be Canadians.

However, we all know there are many more but,  when I started searching for a list I was incredibly surprised at just how many there have been.  Do you remember Oscar Peterson, Wilf Carter and Hank Snow? How about Rush, Loverboy and Martina McBride? Or there is The Tea Party, the Crash Test Dummies and Our Lady Peace. We all know about Nickleback and Avril Lavigne but, what about Billy Talent, Arcade Fire and Feist?

Man, we are one talented country. I have only scraped the surface, there are hundreds more. For a comprehensive listing please check Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_of_Canada

Enjoy the memories.
