    I still can’t believe that the Ontario government launched this great initiative, and is taking acts to under-served areas up north… but then COMPLETELY ignored everything east of Peterborough!

    The GTA gets half the shows, yet they couldn’t book even one out here? I understand the Canada 150 festivities have taken up a lot of space in Ottawa, so I could understand the justification for skipping the Capital. But ignoring Kingston is absolutely shocking, given how many great music artists that city has spawned for this province.
