Canada's blues crusader Paul James is a national treasure, and were it not for the shifting, sliding, finicky tides of the music business -- he'd be known around the world -- after all, he's toured in bands throughout the world, and Bob Dylan once told him if he moved to L.A., he'd make the big time.

A long time ago, in a Canadian music industry far, far away, the federal government had to step in with CanCon quotas to save our singers and musicians from being buried by radio hits from our southern neighbours. Now I wouldn't be surprised if the U.S. built a Trump wall to keep our artists out.

I am a firm believer in sharing, working together, and trusting that one can do what they've been asked to do.
