    The USA has ten times the population of Canada so I would expect an artist who is equally popular in both countries to play ten times as many shows in the USA. The fact that the ratio is smaller than this in all cases indicates that Canadian artists favour shows in Canada over shows in the USA

    Kind of meaningless stat as US is 10 times our population. Even asking the question implies it is “unpatriotic ” or something for even playing the US . What typical 60’s twaddle!
