Michael Buble, dressed as a Mountie, followed with a performance of "Maple Leaf Forever" as a hodgepodge of iconic Canadian symbols flooded BC Place Stadium. There were giant Mounties, tabletop hockey players (introduced to the theme of Hockey Night in Canada), dancing maple leafs, canoes, lumberjacks, massive inflatable beavers and flying moose all exuberantly dancing to Buble.

Other performers included Canadians Neil Young, Avril Lavigne, Nickelback, Alanis Morissette, Simple Plan and Hedley.
