“I wouldn’t have even known what the Order of Canada was. I never wanted to be a singer. I wanted to be a vet.
I studied Agriculture in the University of Manitoba, but never finished my degree as I went into music. But the decision to go into music was always at arm’s length. It was always, ‘I will continue on but on my terms.’
I never planned or knew what I was going to do, but I always knew what I didn’t want to do.”
