Somewhat disappointed with this years showcase of Canadian music!!!! To start with, Justin Bieber won the People's Choice Award, so it's obvious his planned or unplanned bad boy image has succeeded!!!!
Here are a few notables....
Arcade Fire as usual did not appear (touring in South America). Reflektor did win alternative album and also the general album of the year!
Serena Ryder won for songwriter and best artist.
Tegan and Sara won for best single - Closer and best group.
Dean Brody won for best country album - Crop Circles.
Protest the Hero with their album Volition won best metal hard rock album.
Bachman Turner Overdrive (BTO) were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame!!!...long overdue! All members were present and they performed!
