It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

RE: On the other hand,

Not hiring me to play with the SFSO isn't discrimination. That is about job qualification. Discrimination is, as you say, based on race, gender, sexual orientation etc. "Etc" includes....political affiliation and beliefs. A great example would be McCarthy and the un-American activities committee and the artists who were black listed for their political affiliations. I don't know about Canada but here in the USA we are actually protected by federal law against political discrimination.


" It also provides that certain personnel actions can not be based on attributes or conduct that do not adversely affect employee performance, such as marital status and political affiliation."

IMO discrimination based on political beliefs is wrong. and again I say shame on the Toronto Symphony for their act of discrimination against Valentina Lisitsa. If the L.A. Phil were to do that they would get quite an earful from me as a a three time subscriber.
