Harper government slams foreign artists with hefty fee

According to a story in the Calgary Herald, the Harper government has plans to charge up to $425 per musician [and staff such as tour manager, technicians and others] per show. This is regardless of how large the venue will be. this will be applied to artists only.

This fee, for no real reason will cause many of the smaller acts to ignore Canada completely.

You can read the original story here.

There is a petition on the change.org web site. Click here. Even if you are not Canadian, this could indirect affect you.
