MONTREAL — The management of Tandem communication denies having censored the artistic performance of Patrick Watson, during the broadcast of the show from Canada day in Montreal.
The producer of the show has removed a extract spoken of the benefit of Watson in which he recognized the ancestral rights of indigenous peoples.
“The decisions have been made due to the limited time allotted for the entire broadcast,” said Tandem communication by press release.
Canadian heritage is involved in any way in the artistic process of the show, no more than on its final assembly, has been provided.
“As soon as the conceptualization of the show, an artistic choice had been arrested for segmenting the portions of the interviews, vox pop conducted among montrealers, musical performances and speeches official,” said Tandem communication.
