    No Bryan Adams, no Randy Bachman. o Burton Cummings. ,no Neil Young, no Gordon Lightfoot, no Anne Murray?? This is just a list of female singers from the past 15 years, and it is a very incomplete list. The singers i mentioned for the most part are what made Canadian music what it is today. Frankly I am very upset by this list.

    Nice. EXCEPT one thing……where is Sarah McLachlan? CRAZY that she is not on it. Could easily be #1, and if not, at least in the top three. Could readily bump out Chantal. And what about Diana Krall?
