Many of the bands up for Junos this Sunday have been the recipients of funding from a group called The Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent on Recordings, or FACTOR
. But now a Canadian musician and outspoken blogger is criticizing the foundation - claiming some bands and labels get too big a share. Paul Lawton's blog, Slagging Off - Death to The Canadian Music Industry
, has sparked a big discussion in the Canadian music scene, earning Lawton both praise
for speaking out. Brent speaks about the stir with both Lawton and FACTOR's president, Duncan McKie.
