FULFILLING OUR CANCON REQUIREMENTS FOR THE NEXT SIX MONTHS:Tonight is Juno Night in Winnipeg, honoring achievements in Canadian music this year. Demonstrating that Canada isn't quite just like America, only cleaner, the big winner thus far is Serena Ryder, who's won both solo artist of the year and songwriter of the year, and who seems to present kind of a harder-rocking, less jazzy Amy Winehouse vibe. (She beat Robin Thicke, Drake, Michael Buble, and Celine Dion for solo artist, and beat Tegan and Sara, Arcade Fire, and a guy who co-wrote "Roar," "Wrecking Ball," and "Timber" for songwriting.) Justin Bieber also picked up his fourth straight "Fans Choice" award.
