Canadian radio stations are required by law to play a certain amount of Canadian music in their daily rotation. The law itself is not a bad law, it is there to promote home grown talent (which is a good thing).
My problem is with lazy radio stations that play the same tired old Canadian bands day after day so they can fill up on their Canadian content. We get to hear Celine Dion, Barenaked Ladies, Bryan Adams and Shania Twain five times each a day. They play these bands to death instead of doing their homework and finding new Canadian talent.
This law was put in to promote Canadian talent, not play the same old crap all the time and make us sick of our artists. It's a big country with millions of people, it's hard to believe that there are only about ten bands in all of Canada. At least that is what you would think if you only listened to public radio during the afternoons.
I need to be entertained, I have a short attention span so please start playing better music! It would be a good start to find it at home first. If you fail me station managers, I will be forced to buy a satellite radio system and listen to American radio. I know there are bigger problems in the world but I'll talk about them another day.
Oh yeah one more thing, congratulations to moveon.org for taking Bush bashing to far and proving that they are not to be taken seriously any longer.They knew damn well what they were putting on their site. As soon as you compare Bush to Hitler, Jews to Nazis or paint swatikas on American or Israeli flags you've proved without a shadow of a doubt that your a crackpot, case closed.
