The Canadian Press is reporting that several musicians from the Canadian Music Creators Coalition, including Steven Page, Andrew Cash, and Brendan Canning, are in Ottawa today meeting with senior government officials. The report says the musicians met with Industry Minister Maxime Bernier and Canadian Heritage Minister Bev Oda and were also to meet with NDP Heritage Critic Charlie Angus, Bloc Quebecois Heritage Critic Maka Kotto and Liberal Heritage Critic Mauril Belanger.
Update: The NDP has come out with a strong statement supporting the positions of the CMCC, arguing that the coalition is giving politicians a "badly needed wake up call."
Update II: Lots of media coverage of the CMCC visit including CTV, Global, Hollywood Reporter, and the Ottawa Citizen. Most revealing is an MP3 recording of a CMCC meeting with the Ottawa Citizen editorial board.
