Rush fan at Government of Canada makes anonymous edits to 15 Wikipedia entries

Someone at the Government of Canada really cares about Rush, apparently. We want to know who.
Someone using a Government of Canada IP address edited the Wikipedia pages for 15 Rush albums. Can you help us find out who? (Jacques Boissinot/Canadian Press)

For some time now I've been following a Twitter bot that sends out updates every time a known Government of Canada IP address is used to make anonymous edits to Wikipedia entries.

Finally, this morning, some journalistic paydirt:

Between 8 a.m. and 8:28 a.m., someone at Shared Services Canada made a total of 19 edits to 15 separate Wikipedia pages...

... about records released by the Canadian rock band Rush.

And I want to know who.

Can you help? Send your tip to me in an email.

List of potentials so far:

1. Tony Clement, whose love for the progressive rockers is well-known on the Hill. I asked him. He says he didn't. He's still at the top of my list.

2. A friend of a friend or her husband, who are both "Mega Rush fans" and "I think work for the GoC," according to a text I got this morning from a concerned friend shortly after I live-Tweeted the edits. I'm looking into it.

The edits (and some reaction as they appeared)
