So they're calling to all bands to stop coming to Montreal? Cool.... This is an absolutely douchy move.
How can someone think a couple of damn thieves reflects the general population of a city... I mean, come on.
If the band is thinking like that, fine don't ever come back to Montreal again. But don't ''let other bands knows''.
(I'm just gonna add that having all of your gear stolen sucks. I'm not saying it's not a big deal)
I was with them when this happened and some of my stuff was in the van(and thankfully wasn't stolen). No where in that post does it say "don't come to Montreal." They were simply letting other bands know the area isn't as safe as it would appear. Nobody would've guessed the shit would get stolen on one of the main streets in Montreal.
People are so quick to jump down bands throats without knowing enough about it.
