Now I'm starting wondering when KPM and Bruton expanded the operations of their Associated Production Music joint venture into Canada given that Music People still distributed them in the country in the 1985.

Fast forward to 1999 and the only libraries (from 1985 list) still distributed by John Parry's company in Canada by that point were: Atmosphere, Boosey & Hawkes (incl. Cavendish), Crea Sound (incl. Mondiophone), Montparnasse 2000, Mood-Specturm, Multi Sound, Omnimusic*, Parry, Sonimage, Sonoton (incl. Intersound), Standard Music, Studio G, Tele Music, UBM and Valentino: http://web.archive.org/web/19990901022757/http://www.musicpeople.net/librari.htm

* The Music People regained Canadian rights to Omnimusic in March 1999: http://web.archive.org/web/20000524100018/http://www.musicpeople.net/mar99.htm
