Ad nauseam, ad infinitum.


Wikipedia posted:

Canadian content (abbreviated CanCon, cancon or can-con) refers to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) requirements, derived from the Broadcasting Act of Canada, that radio and television broadcasters (including cable and satellite specialty channels) must air a certain percentage of content that was at least partly written, produced, presented, or otherwise contributed to by persons from Canada. It also refers to that content itself, and, more generally, to cultural and creative content that is Canadian in nature.

Magic! is a Canadian reggae fusion band

Canadian music music is a worthless abyss and I hope all Canadian "artists" die in the prolonged painful deaths that they deserve. Except Aalanis Morissette, Jagged Little Pill was OK.

Yeah maybe don't mention The Tragically Hip, or Our Lady Peace, or Neverending White Lights, just mention all the really lovely pop music coming out of Canada, that's really fair. Go back to your condo and wait for death.

Irrelevent. Johnny Cash still chose of his own free will to song a song expressly about mainlining heroin. Hardly a role model!

I am Canadian and hope The Tragically Hip all die in some kind of horrific accident that leaves their bodies unidentifiable as even human. Gordon Downy's voice is as irritating nails on a chalkboard and the music is repetative and simplistic but still better than Downy's voice.

Canadians just don't get passionate about stuff because the cold has dulled their brains.
