Opening Ceremony should focus on great music

Alas, the world will hear what I have known for many years — the musical talents of Canadians.

Tonight’s Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver is sure to feature the talents of Sarah McLachlan, Bryan Adams, Nelly Furtado and Rush. You’re likely to hear loads of Michael Buble in the coming weeks, not to mention Shania Twain, Avril Lavigne. OK, you’ll probably hear Celine Dion, too. Even Canada slips once in a while.

You might also get tastes of some bands you’ve never heard before, such as The Tragically Hip and Blue Rodeo.

As for the torch … my money is on Wayne Gretzky to light the giant torch to cap the ceremony.
