Update: Check out this video posted by the Inside Politics blog posted containing an exchange between MPs Clement and Angus, who quote a number of Rush references during their debate.
All three members of Rush visited Canada's House Of Commons on Parliament Hill in Ottawa today ahead of Saturday's Governor's Award presentation. From The Canadian Press:OTTAWA - Lots of visitors stop by in the public galleries to watch question period, but few are "closer to the heart" of politicians than a visiting rock star. The prog-rock puns were flying faster than Neil Peart's drumsticks as MPs and ministers paid tribute to the members of Rush in the House of Commons. The iconic Canadian band are in Ottawa along with seven other recipients of the Governor General's Performing Arts Awards, the country's highest artistic honour.At this time, there is still no word on whether or not Rush plan on performing at the award presentation on Saturday night.
