Canada legislator seeks to bar U.S. rapper 50 Cent from touring Canada later this year because he has a criminal record and glorifies gun violence
"Give a dog a bad name and hang him." That proverb match for troubled rapper 50 Cent. Judging from his attitude so far he as yet realized that "a good name is better than riches." Bad news for him that his bad reputation already affects his music career, he's not welcome in Canada.
A Canada legislator from the ruling Liberal party seeks to bar the U.S. rapper from touring later this year because he has a criminal record and glorifies gun violence. "Toronto has witnessed unprecedented violence on its streets and deaths as a result of gang warfare, gang culture," MP Dan McTeague said. "This is not a question of censorship. This is a question of trying to protect impressionable young men in our communities who are being destroyed in the prime of their lives," so he continued.
In fact, 50 Cent is scheduled to launch a Canadian tour on December 3 in Vancouver, then make stops in Halifax, Saint John, Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto and Ottawa. And due to such fact, it is a must for him to obtain ministerial permission to enter Canada.
