ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Original Version of THIS IS MY CANADA/MON CHER CANADA (new version by Dream Team Canada Singers now available)

I had the honour of singing This Is My Canada for HRH Queen Elizabeth II during her "walkabout" at the Museum of Civilization in Ottawa/Hull in 1992 with a 9-piece RCMP band. That same year over the Christmas Holidays, I received a call from the Captain of HMCS Preserver - they were playing the song over the ship's sound system off the coast of Somalia while the ship was on overseas duty.

I was invited to sing This Is My Canada and commissioned to write Canadian Olympian/Olympien canadien, another song on this album, for our Canadian Olympic team in Salt Lake City, 2002 and again in Athens, Greece in 2004. On December 15th 2009, I was invited to sing it with the Spirit of the Olympics Choir at the Olympic Torch Relay Celebration in my hometown, Picton ON. In 2014 I was the VIA Rail Artist on Board and travelled across Western Canada and in 2015 I sang it for the Pan Am Games Torch Relay in Trenton, ON.

The title track was written back in 1992 & released it on my first album, “From The Heart” in 1994. It was an album of uplifting songs about Canada, everyday heroes, Acadian heritage, friendships, God and other subjects close to my heart.

I always thought I should produce a full “Canadiana” album and the time has finally come. This CD is really a "specialty" album for school children and organizations who want to celebrate this great country of ours. It includes 4 versions of This Is My Canada and our national anthem: bilingual, English, French & instrumental as well as songs that are of the humourous kind like “I’m A Canadian, Eh”; “I Love Canada – It’s Winter That I Hate”; “Canada’s REALLY Big” as well as a heartfelt tribute, “Canadian Olympian’.

25 years later, This Is My Canada/Mon cher Canada has been re-recorded by Dream Team Canada Singers - a dream come true for me - to hear other Canadians embrace this song and sing out their pride in being Canadian www.nationalsong.ca
