How To Recognize Canadian Material: One must check the centre (note 
canadian spelling :) ) label of an album where the song order and credits 
are listed. If there is a little circle containing the letters MAPL and 
TWO of the letters are shaded in, this is an indication that the album or 
song satisfies Cancon requirements. The letters stand for Music, Artist,
