“I’m a writer.  A writer, not a professor, teacher, banker, doctor or some other professional who finances his or her writing with a secondary income stream.  For a quarter century I have committed myself solely to the art of the narrative.  Ironically, though my work is more widely available to the public through the internet, compensation for my labour continues to decline as copyright is eroded and pirating becomes commonplace.  At any university, high school or elementary school in this country, everyone from the custodian to the dean earns a livable salary except the very people who provide the teaching content upon which these institutions are based.  How fair is this model?”

“We have been fortunate enough to be able to tour all over the world where we recognize that some of the most popular Canadians are our fellow musicians.  We hope that the Canadian Government  recognizes that it has an opportunity to protect the value of music created by Canadians to further enhance our culture.”

Billy Talent, professional musicians
