Subject: RE: Overdue Action - Canadian
Sandy and Willie-O, I sent the following email last week to Geist, upon signing their petion, after hearing about it on CBC. It might clarify things.

"I'm a bit confused regarding your interview on CBC this morning. When I visited the JUNO Awards site, it said that it was closed for nominees for 2003 and there is no Link to a "Canadian Music Hall of Fame". There are other Canadian Music Halls of Fame websites on the internet, all of
which include Stan Rogers. To what "Hall of Fame" were you referring and is there a list of inductees?"

I received the following reply:

"Thanks for your email.
Ironically, the JUNO people changed their web page the very day we launched this campaign.  Their old web page (which was a lot better) had a direct link to the Hall of Fame.  While there is a Canadian Music Hall of Fame on the Internet, which includes Stan at number 6, we want to put Stan in the Real JUNO Canadian Hall of Fame.
I've attached a link so you can see some of the people who are already in there.
Thanks again!
Chris Gudgeon "

Unfortunately the link no longer works.

The fact that Stan is not already in the Hall of Fame is unbelievable. How stupid!
