Poll question: Canadians: which recording artists can claim the most success...
...strictly due to Cancon laws.

I mean, which artist(s) would be least likely to have made a buck as an entertainer/have been heard in radio rotation, if they didn't have "Cultural Welfare" to mooch off?

Note also that these artists can be completely derivitive of tired US/UK musical styles, but still manage to be considered culturally significant...

I didn't include Jan Arden or Allannis Morissette. I don't have room for every hack in the country. Sorry.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. As an America who lives close to Niagara Falls, and across from TO
I must say that I often look forward to hearing Canadian Radio (especially the Hip)

2. Our Lady Peace - would not exist without CanCon.
And a truly terrible band, at that.

5. Understandable really. We have a whole slew of pretentious rock acts.
The Tea Party must get a dishonourable mention here.
