Corky Laing was one of four writers of "Mississippi Queen". For it to be considered Cancon, he would have had to be responsible for either all of the lyrics, all of the music, or half of each, but I don't think that this was the case. 

CFOX in Vancouver played it for years as a Can-Con and never had a problem.

This is the first time I've heard of Westbound #9 being counted as a Can Con. I know there was a few tunes from Detroit that were mixed down in Windsor (Dennis Coffey) and counted as CC in the early 70's.

Mississippi Queen by Mountain counted as Corky Laing was one of the writers.

To Sir With Love by Lulu is Can-Con. The music was written by a Canadian.

Mark London (born 30 January 1940) is a Canadian-born British soundtrack composer, songwriter and music producer. He is perhaps best known as composer of the song "To Sir with Love".
