    New sitcom from CBC.


    The stories come from my own experiences and observations," says creator Zarqa Nawaz, who was born in Liverpool, grew up in Toronto, and now lives with her husband and four children in Regina.

    "The feeling out there — the media's caricature — is of Muslim extremists," said Nawaz, who is creator as well as co-executive producer. "I'm showing a group of Canadian Muslims trying to keep their religion and family together, but facing everything with a lot of fun."

    Mr R,

    Just got back from Regina ... they don't even have Italians there, never mind Islam.

    Went to an Italian restaurant there -- thought a Caprese salad would thaw me out. Good luck. But the owner told me there's maybe three or four families. In what passes for a major Canadian city.

    YHS, etc

    Hell, you don't have to go to Regina to experience that.

    Try Double J land--Shelbourne, Owen Sound, Meaford, Hanover and environs.

    But you're right. Rumour has it that Regiina is supposedly a major city.

    Muslim and Canadian? I think Boom, Chris_L, Big_Dog and Poindexter's heads all simultaneously exploded.

    Is there a point here? Or some inside Canadian joke?

    Our motto: "all white is all right." ;)

    And, since we're giving shouts out to my home region, I urge all red-blooded male SportsJournalists.com members to check out the January '07 issue of Stuff magazine, featuring cover girl Victoria Pratt of Chesley, Ontario (co-star of the new ABC drama "Day Break"). I was quite pleased to see that she talked about Big Bruce, the famous giant Hereford bull that keeps a silent vigil over their town.

    Be advised, this link may not be SFW.

    I predict this show will do for TV what Degrassi Junior High did for it when I was younger.

    I don't know, Double J, but back in the day when I was up in that part of the woods every damn weekend, I went to Chesley for the damn buttertarts. Best ones I've ever had.

    Read the article. It's not a joke. Well, they hope the show IS funny.

    Muslim, Canadian and liberal. :)
  12. I find "buttertarts" a very funny word.
