Canadian content can do well in a digital economy if we have support. We can easily distribute our Canadian art in all of its current and future digital formats. We need to take Juno's thinking and apply to the Internet. Canadian content rules may not be realistically enforceable, but we can still support Canadian artists. We need to consider Canadian art, not as our part of our Canadian heritage, but support it like a business for export. Top Canadian artist should receive international support by our Governments. Art trade missions are just one route to consider. More of this type of Canadian support needs to put into to place.

In a digital economy what's the need for government support? The cost associated to producing independent art is so low now that anyone can create it and find success. The focus should be on giving the kids a sold base in school to work from; exposing them to past materials as to inspire them. We need to fund art programs again.

"The cost associated to producing independent art is so low now that anyone can create it and find success." I agree (to a certain extent) but I think what James is trying to illustrate is the the JUNOS are an awards show that only exists within existing music industry structures. The digital realm, in terms of recognition that it exists and there are artists making a living by selling their product in a digital economy, doesn't seem to be there. The POLARIS might fill that gap but time will tell.
Now, is this a music industry issue? I have no idea. Is this a Canadian Government issue so that all artists are on the same playing field (wherein superstars are still superstars)? I have no idea.
I agree that supporting Canadian culture is important and recognition of such is warranted but how that applies to the digital economy I'm not entirely sure.
