Chris Brown, Drake

First Live Duet Performance

CANCELLED

Chris Brown
and Drake planned to unveil their new song Monday in Toronto, but the plan was scrapped because Chris can't get in to the country ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Drake invited Chris to join him Monday night on stage at his OVO Fest.  We're told Chris agreed and the plan was for them to perform the song on which they collaborated last month.

The performance would have been big for 2 reasons -- it's the first time they performed together, and we're told there are veiled references to Rihanna in the song.  

Now the snag.  We're told Chris' people pulled the plug, because they realized Chris could never get passage into Canada.  The country has close to a zero tolerance policy when it comes to letting criminals in ... and Chris has not only been convicted of a crime ... he's copped to a violent felony.

We're told his people broke the news to Chris ... any attempt to make the concert would be futile.

Shocking, A Country that actually has standards and wont let woman beating, self absorbed, a--holes into the country . Great idea why dont we start throwing these idiots out of our country, especially talentless, classless morons like CB and then lets add the entire KRAPTRASHIAN clan to the list.

My husband & his co-worker flew to Canada for business and his co-worker was denied entry into Canada because of a domestic violence conviction. He had to turn right around and buy a plane ticket back home. Everyone was quite shocked and we've all repeted this story ever since.

"zero tolerance policy when it comes to letting criminals in"
I believe that works both ways. Coming into Canada. Coming into the US.

You see folks, that's the reason the Californian Celebrity Courts have such a difficult time enforcing their own laws and suddenly gets confused between the difference of a felony and misdemeanor. But Mr. Big, money and favors always seems to clear their head and the celebrity walks. They'll fix this little incident for Chris-just you wait and see.
