Loads of canadian music is just poor copies of american styles so why would we settle for that. The only way a lot of the canadian bands get any play is because the radio stations up here have no choice but to play a percentage of canadian content.
Also I personally would be buying even more music if google music or amazon mp3 finally got themselves set up in canada.
Please define "Canadian Style" so I know which bands are not copying our southern brothers.
What a ridiculous comment. Canada has always had fantastic muscians which are globally recognized. Think of Rush, The Band, Arcade Fire, Our Lady Peace - classic Canadian rock bands. Then you have artists like Avril and Bieber who are continually "copied" and they are Canadian.
Do yourself a favour and spend some time listening to Canadian artists, especially the ones i didn't mention, you won't regret it.
