Help with Alexa commands (Canada)

Just got my Sonos One yesterday. Loving it so far!
My question is given that SiriusXM or Google Play is not in Canada yet, I have to use the Sonos app to manually play my selections on either.
I can ask Alexa to stop playing and she will stop that. But how can I tell her to turn back on? If SiriusXM was the last thing playing, I want her to simply resume what was playing. I tried "Alexa, start...turn on... etc" If I say "play last music" she will go to my last TuneIn station.
Is this not possible to just turn the speaker back on? Or maybe there is another phrase? This is all new to me and have never used voice controlled devices.
Thanks!

I think the site below will answer your question.

So "Alexa, resume" should do it.

And FYI, Google Play isn't going to be supported in Canada or anywhere else until Amazon works out it's differences with Google.

In Canada, I think you have to append “Eh?” to the end of every command. 😉
