Juno Awards: Canada gives prizes

Who knew there was a still a land where working on a Dolores O'Riordan record would see you win a prize, rather than be detained in a secure unit?

The Canadian version of the Grammys, the Junos, were passed out this weekend. Actually, I say like the Grammys - it's hard to picture them giving proper, non-genre prizes to K'naan and Metric.
