He was very excited to come to Canada and looking forward to seeing his Canadian fans after so long.
“It is with great sadness and frustration that the Canadian government could not see the overwhelming desire and benefit, and no risk to Canadians to let artist the Game do his tour and to fulfill such a wanted need from the businesses, the promoters, and the fans it would have benefited in such a positive way.”
The rapper had applied for a temporary resident visa for his Canadian tour, but after the rejection of his permit, all of his Canadian tour dates have been canceled.
