MTLEY CRE Protest Shot Down

Cathy Dobson of the London Free Press reports: Sarnia Bayfest [music festival taking place this July in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada] organizer Michele Stokley wants Sarnia Coun. Dave Boushy to know a member of MTLEY CRE was once invited to the White House to talk about overcoming drug addiction.

"Nikki Sixx can speak in Washington, but Boushy says he shouldn't come to Sarnia? If you know nothing about the band, how can you judge them?" Stokley asked.

Boushy tried Monday to convince city council the city should have some say about what acts perform at Bayfest.

He said MTLEY CRE's off-stage antics are "pornographic" and could harm the city's image.

Council did not support him, and several members said they don't want to become a censor board for outdoor events, even those on city-owned property.

Boushy's moral outrage over MTLEY CRE's July 10 appearance in Centennial Park unleashed a flood of comment supporting the band on websites Tuesday.
