Ooh.  Irony.  Nice.

You forgot Paul Gross, Oscar Peterson, Bryan Adams, Gordon Lightfoot, Jeff
Healey, Sarah McLachlin, Uzeb, the Hawks, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Rush
-- and I want to say Steppenwolf but I was never 100% sure about their

Also, a surprisingly good TV series called _War of the Worlds_ filmed in
Toronto (but bankrolled by the US, IIRC), and another equally good TV series
called _Nikita_ (aka _La Femme Nikita_), a great adaptation of Luc Besson's
film _Nikita_.  The Canadian adaptation was way better than the US attempts
to give us a saccharin-dipped cheerleader in the title rôle that ultimately
