Staff of HNIC Holed Up in Toronto Office Making Mix Tape for Barack Obama


The venerable CBC, home of the single greatest night of hockey coverage on the planet Earth (it doesn't get any better than Don Cherry, Ron MacLean, Kelly Hrudey and P.J. Stock) is asking our hockey-loving, Beaver-worshiping, Moose-riding brothers and sisters north of the 49th to make your newest President a playlist of classic Canadian songs. How cute.

Your Chronicle editor wants plenty of Arcade Fire and Leonard Cohen.

Cowboy Junkies are pretty boss....

or maybe just a whole lotta Bryan Adams.

I'm gonna run to you!

Ah, I forgot Cowboy Junkies. Good stuff.

You have to wonder if there's gonna be any Bryan Adams. I think Bryan is Canada's version of the Indian slaughters or the Inquisition, a dark and unpleasant part of their history they'd rather not discuss.
