Petition Tag - executive producers
May 4, 2006
I have started this petition in the hopes of taking it to the 2007 Canadian Idol auditions. My goal is to prove to the executive producers, John Brunton, and Barbara Bowlby that each Canadian deserves the opportunity to pursue his or her dream of singing, and age should not be an issue.
In April of 2006 I attended the Canadian Idol auditions in Kitchener Ontario. I went there to ask the producers to consider producing another Idol competition.
I thought that if Mr.Brunton and Ms.Bowlby were sceptical of how successful an " Open Idol" would be, they could simply take advantage of the millions of viewers that tune into the show every week.
My suggestion was to put two 1-800 numbers up during the show and ask Canada to vote on it, at the final Canadian Idol show this year, announce what Canada had decided!
I was not treated very well. I was yelled at in front on hundreds of competitors and parents. I was told the producers were too busy to talk to people like me. I was grabbed at, and humiliated.

I think Canadian Idol has just scratched the surface of what kind of undiscovered talent it out there.
Talent is talent.
Discrimination can takes many forms... even wrinkles
Thank you for your support!
