• 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. • The ceremony was broadcast on TV for the first time in 1975. CBC had the rights at the time • 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 “Green Thing” In the grocery store lineup, the cashier told an older woman that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren’t good for the environment. The woman apologized to her and explained, “We didn’t have the “green thing” back in my day.” The clerk responded, “That’s our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment.” She was right -- our generation didn’t have the “green thing” in its day. Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled. But we didn’t have the “green thing” back in our day. We walked up stairs, because we didn’t have an escalator or elevator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn’t climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks. But she was right. We didn’t have the “green thing” in our day. Back then, we washed the baby’s diapers because we didn’t have the throw-away kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy gobbling machine burning up 220 volts -- wind and solar power really did dry the clothes. Kids got handme-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing. But that old lady is right - we didn’t have the “green thing” back in our day.

Juno History Cont’d • 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 nickelcoated 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 Back then, we had one TV, or radio, in the house began, has hosted more programs than anyone -- not a TV in every room. And the TV had a else.

AND THE WINNER IS… We used a push mower that ran on human power. • The nominations for each year’s Junos are We exercised by working so we didn’t need to go based on an eligibility period which lasts for 13 to a health club to run on treadmills that operate to 14 months, ending on the mid-November on electricity.

We had one electrical outlet in Shopping & Errands a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn’t need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 2,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest pizza joint. Yes, that old lady was right, we didn’t have the “green thing” back then.

A farm boy accidentally overturned his wagonload of corn. The farmer who lived nearby heard the noise and yelled over to the boy, “Hey Willis, forget your troubles. Come in and visit with us. I’ll help you get the wagon up later.” “That’s mighty nice of you,”Willis answered, “But I don’t think Pa would like me to.” “Aw come on boy,” the farmer insisted. “Well okay,” the boy finally agreed, and added, “But Pa won’t like it.” After a hearty dinner, Willis thanked his host. “I feel a lot better now, but I know Pa is going to be real upset.” “Don’t be foolish!” the neighbor said with a smile. “By the way, where is your Pa?”

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 www.abrionline.org.

“HYDE PARK ON HUDSON’’: Rather than merely doing an impersonation, Bill Murray makes a surprisingly credible Franklin Delano Roosevelt in director Roger Michell’s (“Notting Hill’’) portrait of the president during a weekend visit from British royalty (Samuel West, Olivia Colman) at his home in upstate New York. Not only is he concerned with affairs of state, but also with another affair ... specifically, the one he has with a distant cousin (Laura Linney). Olivia Williams and Elizabeth Wilson also star. DVD extras: two “makingof’’ documentaries; audio commentary by Michell and producer Kevin

“BOSS: SEASON TWO’’: The sophomore season of the Starz drama series turned out to be its last, but not for any lack of memorable acting by Kelsey Grammer, still ferocious as imperious - and secretly ill - Chicago Mayor Tom Kane. The saga resumes with a shocking attack that has long-range effects on Kane and those closest to him ... though getting close to him is, admittedly, not an easy thing. Notable cast additions for this round include Sanaa Lathan as Kane’s chief of staff and Jonathan Groff (“Glee’’) as a relative newcomer to the political scene. Among other returnees are Connie Nielsen, Hannah Ware, Martin Donovan, Jeff Hephner, Kathleen Robertson and Troy Garity. *** “INSIDE MEN’’: Initially shown last summer on BBC America, this well-written drama about acting on the evils of temptation casts Steven Mackintosh (“Luther’’), Ashley Walters and Warren Brown as employees of a British money-counting firm who decide to take advantage of their jobs. They plan a robbery that will make them immediately wealthy, but the moral and psychological fallout from the heist turns out to be much more than they bargained for. *** “ORCHESTRA OF EXILES’’: The roots of the Israel Philharmonic are traced in director Josh Aronson’s documentary, detailing how Polish violinist Bronislaw Huberman spearheaded a four-year effort to spirit Jewish musicians out of Nazi Germany and assemble them into an orchestra. The resulting story is expectedly affecting on a number of levels, including the artistic and emotional ones. *** “MOOGFEST 2006 LIVE’’: Fans of instrumental music - specifically that performed on the Moog synthesizer are in for a treat from this event recorded at an appropriate site, New York’s B.B. King Blues Club. Keith Emerson (of Emerson, Lake & Palmer), “Miami Vice’’ composer Jan Hammer and Roger O’Donnell of the Cure are among the featured artists paying homage to Robert Moog and the unique instrument he invented. ***

Tip Week CIVIL DISCOURSE

This week’s Tip is a simple reminder. How civil are you when you converse with other people, especially when it’s online via social media? Canadians are known to be a polite and civil people, something of which we should all be proud. But it seems, with the advent of online social media, that people feel freer to say things on the Internet that they would never say in faceto-face. This weekend, a wellknown California pastor lost his 27-year-old son to suicide. This pastor is often a lightning rod for criticism and gets it from all sides. Whether it is fellow Christ-follows who disagree with his methods, success, or theology, OR people of no faith at all who disagree with him precisely because of his faith. Perhaps some degree of criticism comes with being a well-known public figure (criticism and opposition generally increase at about the same rate as one’s popularity). What really saddened me this weekend were the insensitive online comments written in response to news articles announcing this pastor’s son’s death. From declarations that his faith and God were fake, to atheists declaring vindication for spreading so-called lies,

For Advertising Call (250) 300 4073

to accusations of child abuse, neglect, possible cover-up, and other ridiculously unsubstantiated claims that only the most vivid imaginations could concoct. The man’s son died - at a very young age - in a very sad way. Why some people feel the need to kick others when they’re down I’ll never understand. I urge you, always ask yourself whether you would stand behind your words if you had to speak them to that person face-toface. If not, please don’t mindless key it onto the world-wide web (Internet). Remember who sees what you write. In the case I’ve related, it’s a grieving father, his entire family, his church congregation, his friends and unrelated others who read all the thoughtless internet comments. This pastor, too, is human. You can give this pastor your condolences online at: www.facebook.com/ pastorrickwarren.

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. • In 1990, Alannah Myles, who opened the broadcast with her hit “Love Is” did her own hair and makeup at home. She had forgotten to book a limo so her drummer had to drive her to the stage door, where she made it just in the nick of time. • When Shania Twain was hosting in 2003, she wore six custom-designed outfits emblazoned with different hockey team logos throughout the evening. • Ronnie Hawkins inadvertently tore a hole in his tuxedo pants onstage in 1981. IT’S A FACT • In the mid-1970s, singer/songwriter David Bradstreet won a Juno award as Most Promising Male Vocalist. By the 1980s he’d fallen on hard times, having strained his voice and grown disenchanted with the industry. He half-jokingly tried to sell his Juno at a garage sale, but the $15,000 price tag he put on it discouraged any buyers. Not long afterwards he began recording film scores in his home studio, and began touring again in the 1990s. He won even more Junos in 1999, 2000, and 2002, which he presumably did not sell at garage sales.
