The CBC had a number of millennium polls and one of them was a music poll. "Which Canadian Singer, musician or group do you believe is the best of the past 100 years?" You know who the winnner was (drum roll please) Gordon Lightfoot!! Here are the top three: 1. Gordon Lightfoot 21% (9,586 votes) 2. Celine Dion 20% (9,131 votes) 3. Tragically Hip 13% (5,893 votes). That's a nice way to start the new year isn't it?

Hi Annette,

Thanks for the info.

Congratulations to Gordon Lightfoot!

There's another poll at www.canoe.com

You can vote for your favorite Canadian music artist.
(Gee, that's a difficult choice, )

Gordon Lightfoot is listed in the middle of the center column.

Go vote like crazy!!

Hi

I followed the link and submitted my vote for GL. So far the results are that he only has 1% of the votes, but this is out of 20,715 votes.

Think of the right and
wrong, then consider
