Here's how London's Junos stack up, in numbers
A roundup of all the arithmetic on the 48th edition of the awards show
Juno week in London is the 48th installment of the awards that honour the best and brightest in Canadian music, but it wasn't always called the Junos.
In 1971, what were once known as the Gold Leaf Awards were renamed the Junos in honour of Pierre Juneau, a cultural nationalist.
He was at the helm of the Canadian Radio and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) in the 1960s, the Minister of Communications in the 1970s and the president of CBC-Radio Canada in the 1980s. Juneau even won a Juno in 1971 as the Canadian music industry's "man of the year."
