CBC Music has been counting down their 100 Best Canadian Songs Ever list in July.  This week, they announced number 26-50.  There are now more and more local acts making the cut as the list inches closer to the number one spot. Tunes by Hamilton superstar Daniel Lanios (#28), local folk legend Stan Rogers (#37) and Burlington's Sarah Harmer (#38) have graced the countown.  Also, one of the most well known songs ever, Born to be Wild by Steppenwolf, (featuring Waterloo's John Kay on vocals) reached number 41.
