CBC's Hockey Night in Canada Anthem Challenge

The theme to Hockey Night in Canada was written in 1968 by Delores Claman and arranged by Howard Cable. It has been used on Hockey Night in Canada broadcasts ever since. The CBC has been paying Claman, who owns the song's rights about $500 per broadcast. Over the years, that is a huge sum of money for a song hat was written in less than a day. For that one day's work, she has made enough money to live on ever since....

I guess CBC has had enough of that and decided to host a open contest for song writers... Here's an example of an entry by a talented local musician Stewart Hope. VOTE FOR HIM !!!
