There could be more bad legal news ahead for Ticketmaster, which is already facing two class action lawsuits in Canada and just settled a costly fight with Bruce Springsteen and his fans.
The Canadian Press has learned Ontario’s Ministry of the Attorney General is looking into the sale and pricing of tickets for events in the province.
Attorney General Chris Bentley “is exploring options right now to address mounting concerns about access to tickets and the cost of tickets,” a source close to the minister said yesterday.
It’s not known whether those options would include legislation or a formal investigation into the sale and resale of tickets.
Bentley is expected to have more to say on the matter when he meets with reporters following today’s question period at the legislature.
“Minister Bentley wants to ensure families and music fans are being treated fairly when they buy tickets for concerts and other events,” said the source.
