The Canadian Music and Broadcast Industry Awards took place Thursday, May 10 at Rebel Entertainment Complex in Toronto. The event saw Régine Chassagne and Win Butler of Arcade Fire receive the 2018 Allan Slaight Humanitarian Spirit Award in recognition of the band’s humanitarian efforts, as well as iconic Canadian crooner Paul Anka receiving the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame Lifetime Achievement Award.
Oh, and a little independently-owned radio station located in Liberty Village was named Rock Station of the Year for the fourth consecutive year.
In happier news: @Indie88Toronto just won station of the year for the 4th time in a row!
We’re a small company who tries to do things differently and you guys get that. Without you this doesn’t happen, so thanks for all of your support and keeping me employed for the last 6 yrs. pic.twitter.com/o2bfdatQ9h
