    I do have Native Canadian in my blood, but I'm not sure it's enough to make a difference. And, I don't want to play that card, as badly as I want to play that card. But, you're right. I should research. Where to begin!?

    Check the birthplaces of your parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. If even one of them was born in the United States, you might have a shot. PM me if this is the case and I'll try to help.

    Turn the channel.

    Look, the "free market" argument is meaningless.

    Countries have set up tariffs and duties to protect their own industries since the dawn of time.

    The arts is an industry as much as textiles, lumber or steel and part of the role of any government is to protect those industries to promote a healthy domestic economy. And it can either be through duties or it could be programs and subsidies to help them develop and grow.

    Yes, but it isn't HDTV that has made the other 20 hours of air time completely irrelevant to the general populous.

    Sorry, Flash, what's your point? That CBC is irrelevant? As opposed to what, Global?

    Sucks that Global has just axed the remains of its sports department. However, from what I've been told about Jim Tatti, the staff wouldn't have been unhappy to see the last of him when he was jettisoned a few months ago.
