VIDEO: Feist Shares Mixed Feelings About Performing on Parliament Hill

After her performance in today's afternoon Canada Day in the Capital show, Feist joined us for a quick chat about patriotism, Canadian music and her mixed feelings about performing on Parliament Hill.

"I think I feel a lot more patriotic when I'm in a forest than I do on Parliament Hill," the Juno Award winning, Grammy nominated artist from Nova Scotia explained. "I think there's a lot of questionable things that I'm confused about that are happening up here in the current government and I don't know how I feel about it... I'm Canadian, I'm very proud to be Canadian - I think each Canadian has a different definition of what that means - and, for me, I don't really find it here."

The places she's called home in Canada include Alberta, the Maritimes, Ontario and Saskatchewan. "Actually every province," she said. "I'm the all-Canadian girl," she laughed.

Feist will be performing again at tonight's broadcast of the Canada Day in the Capital evening show, which you can watch on CBC TV and Radio-Canada at 9pm ET, listen to on CBC Radio 2 at 8pm ET and watch online here at 8pm ET.
