I was going to say that power metal reminds me of NWOBHM with all the fun & the energy taken out but I seem to have forgotten that bit.

My thinking behind that is a few bands that are about today don't make up for 45 years of rubbish just yet

I already mentioned Rush on my list. I know he hasn't even heard of at least 75% of the artists I posted but it's easier to criticize anything you haven't heard.

I can't stand Rush.

I think people need to put this in perspective a little. I'm not saying all Canadian music is bad , what i'm saying is very little of it appeals to me and I feel I hear every bad band to come out of that country.

As far as personal taste goes I like more German bands than Canadian ones. And i'd hardly call myself someone who goes out and listens to foreign speaking music on a regular basis.

What does that matter? I'm judging it on the ones i've heard.
