Import quotas in music and the culture that is Canada

Posted in Vapor Mill by Navin Kumar on November 10, 2012

From a profile of the widely disliked band Nickelback:

Getting famous in Canada is different from getting famous in the U.S. For one thing, the country mandates all commercial stations to devote 35 percent of their programming to Canadian acts.

Did this increase the chance of “infant bands” making it big? I see potential for a research paper here.
