“The Canadian Copyright Act has ensured that I maintain ownership of my work and receive payment when others utilize that work connected to revenue gaining activities. In the digital age, writers are seeing wider distribution without compensation.  It is harder to earn a living, which truly makes it harder to keep creating.  I sincerely hope that the Canadian government recognizes the substantial contribution of creative artists to the cultural tapestry of Canada and ensures that through fair compensation, we can keep Canadian culture strong and vibrant.”

Scott White, Playwright/Composer/Librettist

“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
