Madam Speaker, yesterday, the ADISQ sounded the alarm. The Quebec music industry is in crisis.
For example, Jean Leloup's song Paradis City was streamed 540,000 times on Spotify but he was paid just under $30 for it. What did the Minister of Canadian Heritage say? She said she felt bad for him. The house is on fire and the chief firefighter is saying, “oh, that is too bad”.
Quebec artists need swift and concrete action, not consultations that will take months.
What is the Minister of Canadian Heritage waiting for? When will she finally protect Quebec culture?
