VIDEO: Metric's Emily Haines on Canada Day and Meeting the Prime Minister

Metric rocked the Canada Day noon concert on Parliament Hill today with two hit songs - "Stadium Love" and "Help I'm Alive."  

After the show wrapped, lead singer Emily Haines joined us for a chat about the day's festivities and what makes our country unique. She also let us in on what she really wanted to say to Prime Minister Stephen Harper when she shook his hand, but didn't quite get around to it. 

Watch the video:



Metric will hit the stage again tonight for the Canada Day in the Capital evening show. You can watch on CBC-TV and Radio-Canada at 9pm ET, listen on CBC Radio 2 and CBCMusic.ca at 8pm ET, and stream online at CBC.ca/canadacelebrates.
