I'm not too surprised. Buying stuff online is more money than I want to spend once shipping is factored in. Buying in-person at stores like HMV costs $15 or more. Digital is the obvious choice, unless the band happens to do a cross Canada tour. That doesn't happen much nowadays either so I still end up relying on digital downloads.

Loads of canadian music is just poor copies of american styles so why would we settle for that.

Whatever, haha. I would say loads of Canadian music is just as good, if not better, than what's being made in the States. Yes, it is "American" but what do you expect? Whenever I go to Colorado no one EVER assumes I'm Canadian. And while Propagandhi and Japandroids could pass as an American band, that doesn't mean that they suck or that they're not worth listening to. I think the main reason why Canadians listen to less Canadian music is just because there's so much less of it. Our population is nothing compared to the US so even if you're like me, a proud supporter of Canadian artists, you're still going to be listening to mostly American bands.
