clos­ing bash.

The open­ing fea­tured Sarah McLach­lan, Nelly Fur­tado, Bryan Adams, Garou, k.d. lang and Loreena McKen­nitt.

An on­line poll con­ducted on Peo­ple Mag­a­zine’s web­site asked read­ers which Cana­dian pop star­let should see the stage dur­ing the fes­tiv­i­ties. Dion went up against Sha­nia Twain, Avril Lav­i­gne, Fur­tado and Ala­nis Moris­sette.

Twain was the win­ner, with a stun­ning 62 per cent of the vote.

The coun­try mu­sic star has kept a low pro­file over the past few years and hasn’t re­leased a record of new ma­te­rial since 2002’s Up.

While she’s resur­faced lately — she ap­peared as a guest judge on Amer­i­can Idol and jogged the Olympic torch through her home­town of Tim­mins, Ont. — it would be an as­ton­ish­ing sur­prise to see her take the stage at B.C. Place on Sun­day.

Twain’s pub­li­cist de­clined to of­fer any in­for­ma­tion when reached.
