BULLSHIT

My buddy Orbax is on tour across Canada right now, tons of shows, a lot of them sold out, all arranged months in advance - and the day of the show, some uptight dickward at the Grand Prairie Liquor Board calls the venue, says they can't do it, and threatens them with the loss of their license and a $10,000 fine. Details here. If you look at the comments, Orbax has posted contact info for the Control Board (hint hint, any readers that happen to live in the province), and notes that they're threatening several other venues as well.

I can't fucking believe this. What a load of crap. Alberta once again offers proof that it's the suckhole of the nation.

It's the Texas of the North.

Also I'm not sure if the post on Modblog has this or not (and I'm at work and that sites a no-no here) but there's also an online feedback forum here:

Anyone can use it so feel free to voice your displeasure from where ever you happen to be.

Believe me, I did.
