A few ways of looking at this

A few ways of looking at this I guess. Good for Canadian acts in terms of restrictions on competition. Bad news for Music lovers as it will restrict exposure to interesting international acts. Also bead news for any band or act wanting to promote their music internationally. I suppose this is one of the (few) things Europeans might point to their EU and say at least that organisation would be unlikely to let any member state get away with something like thes musician restrictions over there

We've just fallen fowl of

We've just fallen fowl of this and had to cancel our tour of Canada. Although we're sad that something we've worked hard for has now crumbled away to nothingness, we're more upset for the Canadians who will now be deprived of the ability to see quality, unsigned / small time foreign bands.

YOU voted in the Government to care for and protect YOU and yet all they're doing it sticking one squarely up your cultural ***!


This is indeed injustice

This is indeed injustice being done to common people trying to make a mark in the field of music. Anyways I hope there will be a change in this attitude. Thanks a lot for sharing this news. keep sharing the updates.
