The Contenders: Page 7

121 The Reason
122 The Weakerthans

Jesus Christ, the best band not named Propagandhi that's from Winnipeg, John K. Samson is a genius and the music is so quintessentially Canadian. Amazing lyrics, great music, and quality pervades their music. Weakerthans for life.

123 Kittie Kittie Kittie are a Canadian heavy metal band formed in London, Ontario, in 1996. They have released six studio albums, one video album, four extended plays, thirteen singles and thirteen music videos.
124 The Payolas

They were terrific. Progressive NW stuff from the early eighties. Hammer in a Drum is amazing!

125 Ocean
126 Faber Drive V 1 Comment
127 Wildroot Orchestra

Followed and surpassed the Powder Blues Band. Powder Blues went rock, but Wildroot stayed with the big band sound. Best rendition of Subterranean Homesick Blues and In the Mood. Big on the west coast in the early 80's many of the members of Powder Blues would drop in and jam or play with tese guys in concert.

128 Wide Mouth Mason

Wide Mouth Mason is a Canadian blues-based rock band, consisting of Shaun Verreault (Lead Vocals, Guitar), Safwan Javed (Percussion, Backing Vocals), and Gordie Johnson (Bass, Backing Vocals). Former bassist Earl Pereira was also co-founder of Wide Mouth Mason. The band hails from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and has been active since 1995.

129 Woods of Ypres
130 The Watchmen

May not be that well known but my god are they good.

Leave it to the CBC to exclude Watchmen from their list for about 50 bands I've never heard of.
