Decent list, but I wish Greg MacPherson and Yukon Blonde got a spot.

This is a disappointing list.

I agree with Ms. Remus up there, Yukon Blonde should certainly be on it.

Mister Valaire should have made the cut; they're incredibly unique and refreshing.

I'm sure everyone can name albums that are missing, but we all should be proud how many amazing albums have been released by Canadian artists this year, well, every year for that matter.

Missing Metric, but Sainthood was best Canadian album last year, so glad to see it on there.

Champ came out this yearn, not 2009.
"A jury of 198 music journalists, broadcasters and bloggers from across Canada submitted their top five picks for best Canadian album released between June 1, 2009 and May 31, 2010."

technically, we're both wrong. the time frame for the album's release spans well into 2010. but, champ misses the cut-off date, with June 8th.
