Canadian Music Hall Of Fame?

Thanks to Norman Dale of Prince George has alerted me to the yet-again exclusion of Stan Rogers in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, nearly 30 years after his death.

While I don't want to undermine the accomplishments of those who have been inducted, Stan's contribution to Canadian music is unquestionable and he should be there.

In fact, there are a number of Canadian artists and groups that should be there.  I have my own personal list, and I asked you for yours and boy, did I get a lot of names!

Thanks to everyone who wrote's the final list of every suggestion...hopefully I didn't forget anyone!
