Canadian music icons Anne Murray, Chad Kroeger, Metric, Hedley, Hawksley Workman and others recently lobbied Heritage Minister James Moore and Industry Minister Tony Clement with hopes of changing Bill C-32. Their letter called for a levy on MP3 players similar to that already on blank CDs. Such levies serve as a rough form of compensation collected and doled out by the Canadian Private Copying Collective.

The United Nations General Assembly voted on Nov. 16 to amend a resolution condemning unjustified executions and remove all references to killings due to sexual orientation.

  Spun: Kid CudiPDF files may take a moment to load

Kid Cudi burst onto the Internet in 2008 with the release of his mind-blowing mixtape A Kid Called Cudi. At a time when the Internet was saturated with a litany of mediocre self-released mixtapes, Kid Cudi stood out.

His 2009 debut full-length release, Man on the Moon: The End of the Day, was highly anticipated, but largely ended up flopping. Despite a few good songs ("Simple As," "Pursuit of Happiness," and the infectious "Make Her Say") the album was largely a disappointment.

  Second time not the charm at Vanier CupPDF files may take a moment to load

The last weekend of the CIS football season was set to be very exciting as two teams met hoping to make up for last year's disappointment. The Laval Rouge et Or missed out on the chance to play at home in last year's Vanier Cup after an unfortunate semi-final loss to Queen's University while the Dinos sought redemption after letting a 25-7 half time lead slip away to eventually lose 31-33 to Queen's. For the Dinos, instead of redemption there was a loss that might be even harder to forget than last year's nail bitter.
