I was just about to mention Mr. Cockburn, so instead I'll second this.  
Bruce is also Canadian and has your same first name.  Its a great name to 
yell out at concerts (Ive seen Bruce 4x)  Brrruuuucccce!

For I non-Oils sound I would say:

Spirit of the West (Also Canadian): "Labour Day" is a great, a nice dig 
against Thatcherism in one tune, also "Go Figure"  has a good tunes on 
attitudes on women in religion and treatment of mentally ill.

Donna the Buffalo:  Can't remember any names but one tune has chorus: 
"America, you're so beautiful, so wonderful and free/America you're so 
beautiful, you're the only place I've never seen"

Compare Cable, DSL or Satellite plans: As low as $29.95.
