End Illegal Ticket Sales That Ticketmaster and Other Sites Are Promoting.

We the loyal fans are tired of losing out on opportunities to see some of our favourite artists in concert due to the crooked nature of Ticketmaster Canada these days.

Tickets to shows have become increasingly difficult to attain at face value. The shows are often sold out or nearly sold out even before presales. 

Thousands of Ontario citizens got a taste of this with the Tragically Hip's final shows; only to see them being resold on scalping/resale sites minutes later for thousands of dollars.

On Tuesday January 17th, 2017 tickets went on sale for the U2 show at Rogers Centre on June 23rd in Toronto, Ontario. This is a credit card entry show. This means that the purchaser must bring their credit card, I.D. and their whole party at once to enter the event. This should hypothetically stop scalpers/resellers. However, after many people tried to buy tickets at 10 A.M. sharp, they quickly found out that it was sold out and that scalpers/resellers such as Stubhub had them on sale for eight times+ the face value of the lowest priced tickets. How is this possible when it is supposed to be credit card entry only? There are clearly some inner dealings that the public isn't privy to.

We the people ask you to finally do something about this illegal racket. This shouldn't be allowed as it is illegal and incredibly unfair. Enforce the law.
