Winnipeg Free Press (Newspaper) - November 29, 1971, Winnipeg, ManitobaYouth scene Brand Mellen despite the Canadian radio and television commission s 30 per cent Canadian Content ruling for radio stations which should ensure Home grown acts at least a fair Chance of receiving airplay a lot of Good music is still going unheard. There Are several reasons for this although one Sticks out most predominantly. Under the crts set up a record is considered Canadian Content if it meets with Only one of three criteria it s performed by a Canadian written of a Canadian or recorded in Canada. Thus for the time being it would appear that the Rul ing is virtually useless. For instance Alice Cooper s new 45 under my wheels qualified As Canadian since it was written by Bob Ezrin a producer at Nimbus nine studios m what we have in effect is1 an american group picking up airtime under the Guise of Canadian con tent while in the meantime Many deserving local groups keep waiting for a break which might never come. Future looks brighter. Starting in Jan uary a record must meet two of the qualifications i mentioned to be considered Canadian a song would have to be both written and performed by a Canadian. By 1973, All three criteria must be met which Means any record labelled Canadian Content indeed will be. Perhaps by that time a few disc jockeys across the country will be willing to take a Chance on an unknown Canadian group with a Good record rather than trying to pass off Frank Sinatra singing a Gordon Lightfoot song As the real thing. I have my doubts. Short stuff thanks to the efforts of people like Levi Klady and Chris Jones Winnipeg movie goers have recently been offered an alternative to the Standard film fare offered throughout the City. Len does most of the booking for the University of Manitoba and has presented things such As Ulysses All quiet on the Western front and countless others in the past few months. Chris of course is the rime of the Guy attached to that Friendly face you see in the ticket office at-Cinema-3 to saturday where a lot Good flicks have been revived.

The festival will utilize Cinema 3 s facilities and admission each night will be More on this later. If you happen to be literary a minded it might pay you to look into the University of Winnipeg alumni association s Centennial essay contest. The contest is open to the Public and essays must concentrate on an aspect of Winnipeg s history such As education journalism sports or religion. The deadline Isi Jan. 31, and first prize is for further information regarding length and for mat write the Centennial essay contest a of Ivy 515 Portage Avenue. It seems rather absurd that in an age where Equality is preached everywhere Many people still tend to categorize others according to their race or ethnic Back ground. More so than most countries Canada is a virtual melting pot of different cultural which have blended to Gether into a workable Multi cultural society. People Are people and should be accepted on their individual characteristics not stereotyped. Wed All be better off that Way.
