Javascript uses [] as its array indexing operator.  The expected variable is an array of object, which can be done using:
var myarray=[{'title':'canada','year':'1999'},{'title':'america'}];

// to show the result
// alert(myarray[0].title + ', ' + myarray[0].year + ', ' + myarray[1].title);

Please see my article on objects and arrays.

An array and object are VERY closely linked
