Steven Page of Barenaked Ladies comes out Swinging from the CMCC Corner

As I have mentioned the Barenaked Ladies are pretty savvy. I was going to frame that with a "... pretty savvy when it comes too..." but I couldn't figure a "too ...." that encompassed all their savvyness, so I will leave it as, "pretty savvy."

Their wisdom in this technological age never ceases to impress me, and when I saw the Canadian Music Creators Coalition form I expected their name to be on the list of artists who are apart of the Coalition. In honesty, when I read their first statement (PDF) I was pretty sure the boys of BNL had written it, or at least a large part of it. Just based upon the few times I have heard them speak, and their blog.

So when Steve came out in the National Post with this bit (I'm not sure it was in the published paper, but it was on NP's site) it pretty much firmed up my belief that BNL is a cornerstone of the CMCC. As I support their position, I want to help by making as much noise about it as possible!

So Steve, Ed, Jim, Kevin and Ty, keep the Music, the Politics, the Movements, the Podcasts and Creativity flowing. I can't wait to hear the new Album, perhaps soon *wink*
