At a ceremony in Toronto's O'Keefe Center on February 5, 1981 Joni was in competition for a Juno Award as Canada's Best Female Vocalist, which she lost to Anne Murray. But Joni was also inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and presenting the award to her was Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. In her acceptance speech she remarked that receiving a Hall of Fame accolade like this one made her feel like hockey champion Boom Boom Geoffrion.
