I'm pretty sure it is only monetary sacrifices Eurovision demands these days and CETA is going to make both our countries bleed financially anyway in order to downgrade social standards and generally vacuum up money towards the top and to the big corporations of the USA via the back door. Might as well get one enjoyable thing out of the whole fiasco. Besides, if 'Straya can do it, how hard could it be? If it were up to me I would only have one additional condition in addition to the monetary fees: No Bieber!
On a more serious note, with future participation of Turkey, Russia and now even Israel increasingly uncertain I think a spot may have just opened up should Canada want it.
Yeah, if mr. Sand feels the same way then that may be why Australia and not Canada is a participant now.
In any case I feel you buddy, nobody should have to sit through so many hours of Canadian biowarfare, It must certainly have been against the Geneva Conventions and various other human rights treaties.
