Once Upon a Time...

"Canadian actors made a case for new media funding at a hearing today before the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission.

The performers helped kick off the first day of hearings on regulating online content by urging the CRTC to make Internet service providers follow the same rules as television and radio broadcasters and protect Canadian content online.

"This is a battle for the future. What we want is a place for Canadian storytellers and our stories," said Richard Hardacre national president of ACTRA"

Here's a story for you.

Once upon a time Canadians had one small piece of freedom left, it was called the internet. Then some whiny ingrate, wannabe "artist" hack and his can't-make-a-living-without-subsidies looser friends tried to screw that up too.

You want people to pay attention to "Canadian Art"? Consistently make something worth looking at, watching and listening to.

Oh, and failing that you can still keep your greasy hands of my internet!
