“Riot Grrrl in Canada was strongest on the West Coast; heavily influenced by proximity to the scenes in Seattle and Olympia. The East was more arty and punk with some grrrls coming up through the hardcore and even grindcore scenes. This selection includes bands that were very early groundbreakers in Canada from both sides of the country.”
