The Music Man - Any Nanaimo Similarities?


It has been a long time since I had enjoyed "the Music Man" for the first time and although I couldn't remember the storyline completely couldn't help but think there were similarities with what Nanaimo has experienced this past decade or so.

The character in the Music Man is a travelling con man who convinces a small town he has the answer to their ails by purchasing uniforms and instruments from him to start a band.

I don't know if this is available online anywhere to view but I think I am not the only one who can make the leap to seeing some similarities with convention centres and hotels and more hotels and cruise ship terminals and music bands. All we need to do to see this grand transformation is give some of our money to the nice man who will fulfil all of his grand promises.
