LMO and the fees on musicians

http://www.charlatan.ca/2013/09/new-fee-on-international-acts-makes-local-venues-uneasy/

The discussion continues,  is it as stated by Kenny’s secretary a comparable fee or is this a gross oversight on the part of the government.  I believe someone screwed up royally here.  There is no question that we should focus on hiring Canadians when there is a Canadian able to do the job but you cannot compare the hiring of a band or musician for your club to hiring other potential workers.

The question I have is where was the consultation on this, I have yet to see any club speak up and state that yes they did have a chance to comment.

Have you signed the petition yet???
