We Canadians have a Constitution; we don't ban much unlike Blighty
Thanks to the late Pierre Trudeau, Canada has a Constitution that keeps governments in line. Really.
But this little fracarse is all about Canadian content.
It's not onerous: Broadcasting Act of Canada, that radio and television broadcasters (including cable and satellite specialty channels) must air a certain percentage of content that was at least partly written, produced, presented, or otherwise contributed to by persons from Canada. It also refers to that content itself, and, more generally, to cultural and creative content that is Canadian in nature.
Even if the dollies are from another country, the CanCon can be met by the written, produced, presented part of the rules.
The important word is MAPL. Canadian content in a musical selection must generally fulfill at least two of the following conditions:
M (music) - the music is composed entirely by a Canadian.
A (artist) - the music is, or the lyrics are, performed principally by a Canadian.
P (performance) - the musical selection consists of a performance that is: recorded wholly in Canada, or performed wholly in Canada and broadcast live in Canada.
L (lyrics) - the lyrics are written entirely by a Canadian.
There is even a MAPL, a clever play on Maple (tree), logo which will be seen on all records and videos which shows how CanCon rules are met.
Australia, Philippines, Mexico, Nigeria, Israel, South Africa, Jamaica, Venezuela, and New Zealand, Republic of Ireland and France also have quotas.
So bring on the girls from the Miramichi, or the wild women from The Rock (Newfoundland).
