George Canyon rose to becoming one of Canada’s hottest Country Music stars in the early 2000’s and has won countless accolades and awards, including Juno Awards, CCMA Awards, and ECMA Awards to name a few. He has been inducted into the Nova Scotia Country Music Hall of Fame, recorded 12 albums, and was recently presented a certified Platinum Award for his debut album ‘One Good Friend’. George and his family reside in the Calgary area.
You may also know him as the national anthem singer for the Calgary Flames. What you probably didn't know is that George became part of my extended family many years ago. As I move forward on my journey to represent the residents of Ward 12 on city council, I am very thankful for the support of all my family, friends, and neighbors. George included.
We've put together a video message featuring one of his songs and a message from George as well. I hope you enjoy it.
