How does anti-oil musician John Carroll get to his gigs?

Another day, another lifestyle hypocrite. This time a musician is promising to break his signed contract unless an Ottawa area music festival dumps a key sponsor – an oil company and pipeline promoter.

    Why do women sleep with artists?

      For the same reason little girls love lost puppies and bring them home.

    • Justin St.Denis

      A keen observation!

    Glad to say my friend and co-worker will still be performing there.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Who might that be? We could give him/her a career boost by attending his set. 😉

      • kkruger71

        Actually he is not a musician, he is performing a variety show in the kids zone.

  • Justin St.Denis

    Yeah, that Pete Seeger really blazed a trail, didn’t he?

    The same question should be asked of _all_ anti-oil activists. Recently while flipping channels on TV I happened on a native woman driving around Ft. MacMurray moaning about how the land had been ‘despoiled’. Yup…driving in a big SUV. I didn’t watch long enough to hear her explain where she’d prefer to see oil extracted [NIMBY, obviously}.

    Seems to me that he will be in breach of contract.
    In the UK you could then be sued.
    The time to complain is before you sign a contract.
