Canadian singer-songwriter Sarah Harmer took home another Juno (Canada’s version of the Grammys) last night for Music DVD of the Year. The winning documentary, Escarpment Blues, follows Sarah on her “I Love The Escarpment Tour” which had Sarah and her band-mates hiking Canada’s Bruce Trail and playing shows at night to raise awareness about the aggregate business (a fancy term for the glamourous world of gravel, sand and limestone) on the Niagara escarpment.

Picture the aggregate industry on the escarpment as Goliath and Sarah as its David. Along with her fans and family, she’s been fighting the good fight these past couple of years trying to protect the land along the Ontario Niagara Escarpment which backs on to her family’s farm. (Unfortunately, despite the fact that the Niagara Escparment has been designated a UNESCO World Biospere Reserve the area is home to 44 pits and quarries and the aggregate industry has been lobbying for more.)

Thanks to Sarah’s hard work not only has she walked away with a Juno but the Ontario government recently took some unprecedented and much needed steps to protect the land which should have been rightfully protected ages ago.

The 2007 Juno Awards were handed out on March 31 and April 1 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and were hosted by Nelly Furtado
