Also on the topic of Canadian politics, the National Library of Canada has interesting articles about Sir John A. Macdonald and Joseph Howe, two important leaders during the formation of Canada.

The Trews will be performing on the ECMA‘s February 15 at 8 p.m. A.S.T. on CBC They are a great live act, so I’m sure you’ll be impressed by them if you tune in. I believe you can find a live feed on the CBC website. Matt Mays & El Torpedo and Great Big Sea will also be performing. Notable awards nominees include Buck 65 (male artist, alternative album), The Trews (new artist / group, rock recording), and Sloan (too many to name).
