How exactly is this stupid? I am Canadian and if we didn’t make a conscious (and legislated) effort to keep our culture, we would be swamped by the U.S., with 10 times our population.

I LOVE THIS LAW! it’s awesome because there are so many canadian bands and singers that dont get enough recognition (eg. Hollerado, Tokyo Police Club, and Alexisonfire even tough they recently broke up ):)
i think it’s great because idk about you guys, but canadian artists are the BEST.
and im canadian btw
and check out some of the bands i mentioned, they’re awesome

I agree. This law makes complete sense. Canada has to struggle as it is with competition from the US. This is a way to protect Canadian artists and preserve our culture.

I am a Canadian and I think this law is completely stupid. This was imposed by the CRTC (along with a ton of other stupid regulations). If Canadian music is so great, which is suspect because we do have nickleback and bieber, then it does not need a law to be able to survive.

This is not stupid at all. It makes sense to protect CANADIAN made products while you’re IN Canada like that. It just like protective taxes and tariffs in the U.S to make people but AMERICAN goods. It’s not like they’re saying you have to listen to the Canadaian bands lol. Nobody is forced to listen to music they don’t like, although, Canadain bands are great, so how could you not like them?

Yeah this is stupid, and its the reason I don’t listen to the crappy Canadian radio. Culture is ever evolving and “protecting” it with violence is ridiculous.

I’m not Canadian, but I don’t think there should be a law like this. I think radio stations should be allowed to play the music they want to play without government interference and mandates. Plus, remember that this law is what allowed Nickelback to become popular. P.S. To all you Canadians: Remember that you still have Rush.
