Juno History • The Juno Awards are named in honor of Pierre Juneau, who was the very first President of the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission and former President of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. In the early 1970s, Juneau was the architect of the CRTC’s Canadian content regulations which require that a certain percentage of radio and television time be devoted to programming or music which is produced in Canada. This action created a market for Canadian music and fueled the subsequent boom in music production. In 1971, Juneau received a special Juno Award, being named “Canadian music industry Man of the Year.” • The Juno Award was originally called the RPM Gold Leaf Awards, created by “RPM Magazine” publishers. They were awarded for the first time in 1970. That evening, 250 people showed up at the doors, which was twice the number of people who had actually been invited. Anne Murray had the flu and almost didn’t make it to the ceremony. The name was changed to Juno Awards the following year, simplifying Juneau’s name.

JUNO AWARDS HISTORY • Starting in 1964, “RPM Magazine” polled its readers to determine the best artists in Canada, releasing the results in December. From 1970 to 1973, winners of the Juno Awards were announced in “RPM Magazine” prior to the awards night. Starting in 1974, the award winners were not made public until the Juno ceremonies. • The first Juno Award trophies were constructed from walnut, stood 18 inches (46 cm) tall, and resembled a metronome. When the ceremonies were televised beginning in 1975, the award was redesigned and was made out of clear acrylic instead, while still retaining the metronome shape. In 2000, producers complained that the trophy didn’t look good on TV and they asked for a re-design. Ontario artist Shirley Elford designed the new award, made from glass. It depicts a human figure surrounded by a nickel-coated spiral (which is symbolic of a musical staff) situated on a base of aluminum. • The Juno Awards, customarily held in Toronto, were hosted outside of Toronto for the very first time in 1991, being held in Vancouver. Since then they’ve been held in cities from coast to coast. The ceremony did not return to Toronto until the year 2011, which marked the ceremony’s 40th anniversary. • George Wilson, who hosted for five consecutive years when the Juno Awards first began, has hosted more programs than anyone else. Burton Cummings comes in second place, with four appearances as host. • A Humanitarian Award was inaugurated in 2006. Bruce Cockburn was the first artist to be given this honor. • 1.6 million viewers watched the entire show in 2012, and 6.5 million viewers tuned in for at least part of the program. AND THE WINNER IS… • The nominations for each year’s Junos are based on an eligibility period which lasts for 13 to 14 months, ending on the mid-November prior to the awards ceremony. • The Artist of the Year and Group of the Year nominations are determined by sales and a CARAS member vote. CARAS stands for Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, and they are responsible for the management and operation of the Juno Awards. • The nominees for Album of the Year and International Album of the Year are determined by sales figures. • The New Artist of the Year, New Group of the Year, Rock Album of the Year, and Pop Album of the Year are determined by sales in conjunction with a jury vote.

• In 1985, singer k.d. lang famously accepted her award for Most Promising Female Vocalist dressed in a floorlength vintage satin wedding dress and cowboy boots. She bounded onto the stage, did a little hoedown, and (since she was voted ‘most promising’) made many promises, including promising to “continue to sing for only the right reasons” before curtsying to the crowd. • When Eddie Schwartz went to give his acceptance speech for the Most Promising Male Vocalist award in 1982, he took a big swig of beer on live TV. Afterwards two police officers reprimanded him, telling him that was illegal before finally releasing him back into the show. ANECDOTES • In 1983, the hosts held up a compact disc and explained that this new medium was going to be the wave of the future. Host Burton Cummings had never seen a CD before then. • Bryan Adams was unable to attend due to air travel disruptions caused by the Icelandic ash cloud in 2010. He received his Allan Waters Humanitarian Award via satellite.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): The light that drives you forward is within and can light the way. This week, a faster pace is necessary to deal with a plethora of commitments. The wheels are turning in a direction that leads to your dreams. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Consideration conquers controversy. You will navigate the fast-moving twists and turns of the week ahead more easily if you make it a point of honor to remain cool and considerate of others. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A little encouragement goes a long way. Look for ways to ignite your inspirations in the week ahead. When you are known throughout your community, you can more easily demonstrate integrity. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Ratchet up the rhythm. In the week ahead, get up and at ‘em, since shrinking violets risk being trampled by those in a hurry. If you are tempted to flirt, be sure to flirt with only the best people. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): How you perceive the strength of the wind depends on your perspective this week. In front of the wind, you might view the onslaught as overwhelming. If moving with the wind, you might see it as an advantageous force. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Enthusiasms can be contagious. You may stand out as someone’s hero or heroine. Someone can light a fire under your ambitions and provide concrete encouragement in the upcoming week. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Sleepwalkers receive a wakeup call. Your fantasies can give you inspiration, but you could be blind to the drawbacks or oblivious to the obvious. A family situation could be mystifying in the week ahead. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Turn your face to the sun like a sunflower. To grow and gain strength in the upcoming week, focus on what makes you happy. Be cautious of fantasies that thrive under a facade. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The darker the room, the more you appreciate light. A special someone can act as a good sounding board for creative ideas in the week ahead. Use your extra energy wisely, whether to entertain a lover or to find moneymaking ideas. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Not everything important will be revealed at first glance. Take your time about making an important decision in the week ahead. You may learn that the more you resist change, the more things change. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Press the “pause” button. During the week ahead, you may have more than one opportunity to take stock of your financial situation. Enjoy some needed relief from unexpected bills and responsibilities. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A visionary outlook or an artistic flair can be a valuable asset this week. Blend your energy with that of others to create a powerful force that can lead to success. Be open to new viewpoints.

Jesse- is a senior gal who came to the SPCA for a bit of help finding a new forever home. Her previous owner became quite ill and could no longer care for her, as well as a couple of her other kitty friends who are also looking for forever homes. We believe she is around 10 years old so she what she is really looking for is a nice cozy cat perch in a sunny window to watch the days go by for the rest of her life. Jesse LOVES to munch on treats and get cuddles and pets, since she is such a lover of treats and in her senior years a weight management diet would be a great option for her, as well her previous home was a multiple cat dwelling so she gets along with most cats, as long as they are a bit more lade back like she is. Come on by the Shuswap SPCA and fill out an adoption application and meet Jesse Girl. Chloe- came to the Shuswap SPCA because her previous owner became quite ill and could no longer care for her as well as a couple of her other kitty friends. Chloe is 4 years old and is quite the little doll. She is easy going, LOVES attention, scratches on her back and under her chin, and if you are ignoring her she will come by and rub up against your legs and look up and give you a Hey you up there, give me pets! look on her face that you cant resist! Chloe’s previous home was a multiple cat dwelling so she gets along with most other cats, as well she also lived with dogs. She is a younger girl so is still inquisitive and loves to explore, oh, we must not forget about the treats! If Chloe looks like the cute little muffin you have been looking for then come on by the Shuswap SPCA and fill out an adoption application to meet her : )

Q: I read in your column about J.C., from Oregon, whose dog was having breathing (problems), which sounds like what our dog used to experience. She’d been leash trained and always pulled. I began to think I was harming her and purchased a harness instead for our Beagle/Pekeapoo mix. Was I right, and could a harness be more useful? - M.W., Canton, IL A: “You’re right that constant pulling on the leash can affect a dog’s breathing, and even create pressure on the eyes (possibly leading to glaucoma),” says veterinary behaviorist Dr. Gary Landsberg, of Thornhill, Ontario, Canada. “A harness or head halter is definitely preferred.” Many veterinarians also believe that “choke collars” can cause or contribute to collapsing tracheas later in life. You could consult a dog trainer or certified dog behavior consultant on how to encourage your dog to walk on a loose leash. Clicker training can be a great tool for this. There are also some excellent video examples teaching techniques at With 4 locations to serve you •Revelstoke •Kamloops •Salmon Arm •Kelowna
