First, they were invited by no-one other than Canada’s prime minister Stephen Harper to have a drink in his residence and then during the AJuno Gal Dinner, the band was recognised for their charitable work with their Simple Plan Foundation and received the honorary Allan Waters’ Humanitarian Award.
