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.

They must also have a No Douchebag policy, which is why Justin Bieber left.

Canada doesn't allow anyone in the country who has had a conviction of a crime in the last 5 years that would be considered a felony under Canadian law. This includes ANY DUI, as any DUI is considered a felony under law there. After 5 years you may apply for a rehabilitation permit and show proof as such (depending on the of the crime) and possibly be granted admittance.

This is what you call stupid stuff as well. This would have been a sold out crowd. Chris and Drake should sue the people behind this if contracts were signed. This is not the fans its the business people who are paying to keep them from performing. Probably the devil worshipers and big cocaine, alcohol and other drugs people that pay for the freak shows.

The US is far from any zero tolerance. You can even get waivers for offenses. It shows.
