Awards Galas And Dinners

The Canadian media and business communities in the 1990s have become as vulgar and as crazed as Americans are when it comes to shameless self-congratulation and self-promotion of its achievers and celebrities. While Canadian media award galas are used as occasions to suck up to the multicultural community so they can ignore them at funding time, business award ceremonies are generally occasions to reassert the importance of having aging white guys firmly in control. The relative degrees of insincerity and jibberish in both kinds of galas are indistinguishable. See Genies, Junos, Geminis
