Quebec lawyer says bill banning ticket resales "like Prohibition"

Hearings are underway in Quebec into Bill 25 which clamps down on the resale of event tickets online by third parties.

Radio Noon host Bernard St-Laurent interviews lawyer Julius Grey who's representing one of the resale companies. He likens the bill to "Prohibition".

We also hear from André Ménard, the co-founder and vice-president of Spectra and the Montreal Jazz Festival, who says we aren't talking about the folkloric selling of tickets by scalpers on the sidewalk, but by big businesses.
