As this post goes live, I am on a cruise ship starting in Boston and ending in Montreal. Afterward, my family and I will head to Toronto. This will be the first extended stay in Canada for my wife and me and the first time, period, for our daughters.
In my absence, I will present two weeks of songs by Canadian performers. I make no promises about the quality of the artists, only their nation of origin.
Starting things off, appropriately, is the Canadian national anthem, performed here by Halifax’s own Sarah McLachlan.
