Baker Praises

She's the Pride of Port Medway, and Region of Queens Municipal Council thinks Carroll Baker is pretty special. To that effect a special resolution was approved by council to convey its congratulations to Carroll Baker on being named to the Order of Canada and express its pride in her extraordinary accomplishments in the music industry. Baker has had more than 20 number one records, 12 of which were consecutive, a record that remains unbroken in Canada by a Canadian country music performer. She has been inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame, the Nova Scotia Country Music Hall of Fame and has received Lifetime Achievement Awards from the provinces of Nova Scotia and Ontario.
