TRULY CANADIAN


I have included a couple of his songs.  He became very well known for being Canadian and being proud of it!  Market Place was a good CBC program to help consumers that aired every week...He sang the theme song!  Most people think of Hockey as being Canada's National sport, he also sang that theme song as well....

  2. He was truly unique. He was not your usual entertainer type. I never got an opportunity to see him in person, but always enjoyed his down home music. Wickipedia gives a good overview of his life and music.
