We excitedly continue our Canada Week coverage here at Amplify with a marquee Q&A with Live Nation Canada President Paul Haagenson. The longtime “rock and roll guy” talked with Dave Brooks about the country’s growing routing map and the development of domestic bands in the market.

We also have an update on the Dawson Creek’s Encana Events Centre, which is hosting this year’s World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, and a piece on Live Nation Canada’s new sponsorship agreement with Mercedes-Benz. We’ve also got a piece from Taylor on Berklee College of Music’s new Popular Music Institute, which is giving students a chance to learn how the music industry works.
