Roxodus Fest blames the rain for drowning it

“Hair in the Fair” also shedding acts

To our Roxodus Family, ⁠

During the past couple of months, our venue at Edenvale Airport has battled tremendous rainy weather that has impacted our ability to produce the festival.
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of the Roxodus Music Festival this year.
Our team has worked tirelessly to find a solution in which the show can go on but unfortunately, we could not make it happen this year.
Our dream of producing a ‘once in a lifetime experience’ has been put on hold as we take the much-needed time to nurture our venue into a premier landmark in Ontario.
We sincerely thank all of the artists, sponsors, partners, and neighbors who have supported us from the very beginning.
The embrace from our community has meant the world to us and we hope to one day see our dream come to life. ⁠
Information about ticket refunds will be released shortly.⁠

Sincerely,⁠
The Roxodus Team

Canopy Growth just sacked Bruce Linton. The cannabis co-CEO, recently profiled by Bloomberg Businessweek, was terminated amid widening losses. Meanwhile, the number of Ontario weed stores will expand this fall: Toronto has 13 of the next 42 lottery slots.


Finally, a too smooth Roughrider

Gainer the Gopher, the mascot of Saskatchewan’s CFL squad since 1977, debuted a makeover at a Canada Day game against the Argos. The new costume traumatized Regina residents unaccustomed to seeing this squirrel looking skinnier:
