Bill Cosby is still going to Canada. According to recent reports, the famed comedian has vowed to keep his words and is keen to perform in Canada in the coming few days.

The representative of Cosby has confirmed that the 77-year-old comedian is keen to perform in Toronto. According to Billboard, Innovation Arts & Entertainment which is organizing these shows said in a statement that due to the legal contract which stands between them and the comedian, they are legally obliged to organise the shows despite the huge protest.

Chicago based agency has acknowledged the ongoing protest and outrage against the famed comedian. Cosby is scheduled to perform at the Square in Kitchener, Ontario, on Jan. 7; at the Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario, on Jan. 8; and at Hamilton Place Theatre in Hamilton, Ontario, on Jan. 9.

IAE has claimed that they will be fully armed to maintain peace during the performance and to protect its audience as well as the performer. "While it is disappointing for the need to worry about the theater being a place for planned protests, we are fully prepared to protect our audience," the statement by Innovation Arts & Entertainment said. Meanwhile, Megan Walker, executive director of London's Abused Women's Centre is reportedly planning a protest outside the Budweiser Gardens in London on Jan 7. Other venues may also witness protest and agitations.

As reported earlier, about 15 women including former top model Beverly Johnson have come forward accusing Cosby of drugging and sexually assault. Although Cosby has never been charged in any of these cases as they are more than a decade old, the allegations have reportedly hit hard on his reputation and 'fatherly' public image. Netflix had cancelled its concert special while NBC had pulled the plug on one of its upcoming sitcom after the huge outrage against the comedian.

In a recent update by Classicalite, Cosby along with his wife Camille will very soon appear in the Oprah Winfrey show for a personal interview. It is reported that Cosby himself want to appear on the show as he trusts his long time friend Winfrey who will help audience to differentiate between facts and rumours. Nothing has been officially confirmed yet.
