Dean Del Mastro stands with Justin Bieber

The pop star might’ve been booed last night at the Grey Cup and his expressions of nationalism might be problematic, but Dean Del Mastro is proud of Justin Bieber.

I am not a big fan of Justin Bieber`s music but as a Canadian I am extremely proud of his global success. At last nights Grey Cup he gave a great performance that no doubt encouraged hundreds of thousands of more Canadians to tune in to what was a tremendous celebration of a Canadian tradition. I wish him all the success in the world; who knows maybe someday he can buy the Maple Leafs, who we both cheer for, and make them a winner too.
