Canada is celebrating its 150th birthday this year and to commemorate the occasion, Universal Music Canada is releasing a new compilation of Canadian music titled Canada 150: A Celebration of Music. The 6-CD set comes packaged in a 60-page, 10x14" hardcover book and includes 2 Rush tracks - Tom Sawyer and Lakeside Park. There's also a single CD Canada 150: Icon edition that includes 11 of the most globally recognizable Canadian hits, one of which is Tom Sawyer. The compilation will release on the eve of Canada's 150th birthday this coming June 30th in Canada, and it will also be available via import in the US on July 7th. On a related note, Sirius XM Canada is celebrating Canada's 150th birthday by compiling a list of the 150 Greatest Canadian Songs of All Time. You can cast your vote by going to and voting for your three favorite Canadian songs - all of which should obviously be Rush songs! :) Sirius XM Canada will then reveal the top 150 songs on Canada Day this coming July 1st. Thanks to RushFanForever for the heads up.
