Canadian Troops: 2011?
Canadian Troops to stay in Afghanistan for a few more year.
Canadian troops will remain in Afghanistan until 2011 with 2,500 soldiers.
I am a high school student who reluctantly got dragged into a class debate on the recent announcement of the extended military stay in the violent Kandahar region; as in favor of it. Although I strongly oppose this decision I have to come up with conclusive arguments as to why this is a practical decision on the Canadian Government's part.
I would be eternally grateful if you would share your views on this controversial news story which is has been subject to great debates all across this country. If you could drop in a message or two, underlining your favorable position supported of course by legitimate sources would help me tremendously to collect opinions from all across this great country, as opposed to only New-Brunswicker's point of view in rural Moncton.
Thank you for you input.My question might have been wrongly asked, I simply wonder what does this decision have of impact on citizens from across the country, even from other countries because we aren't fighting independently. This war has been controversially debated in various forms and I offer yet another, to collect ideas from every type of people, may it be canadians or not. And I am in now way asking for you to do my homework in my place as several have suggested.

CBC Radio2: 8pm: Iranian singer Parissa, a concert of Persian classical music
CBC Radio Programming GuideFrequency Guide
I've been listening to CBC Radio all day, this morning, they had music from U.S.S.R., as a part of their 'Censor This' theme for the week, and tonight, during the In Performance
program, the series will be continued with a concert by a Iranian female singer of Persian classical music:
Thursday, February 22, 2007, 8:00 p.m.
Most of us don't think of censorship in connection with music. But as tonight's In Performance will demonstrate, in some places, even music is strictly controlled.
As part of CBC Radio's special series "Censor This!", In Performance presents a concert of Persian classical music performed by expatriate Iranian singer Parissa and the Dastan Ensemble. As a woman, Parissa was forbidden to perform in her homeland for many years, and a performance such as this one, with the all-male Dastan Ensemble, would have been unthinkable. Hear it tonight on In Performance, with host Andrew Craig, at 8:00 p.m. (8:30 NT) on CBC Radio Two.
CBC Radio Two Eastern Time (32 kbps) stream:http://www.cbc.ca/listen/streams/r2_32.htmlCrossposted
Note: If you are in Newfoundland, it'll be on at 8:30pm.

looking for the name of a show
I’m pretty sure the show was in french, but it’s possible that it was in English. I either would have watched it while living in New Brunswick or Ontario. I suspect it is from the early nineties, but it could be older. It followed a boy and a yellow car that could talk and transform into other vehicles. It would have been targeted at children. The type of car was just like this:
but the face was different. For one thing, it had a round nose.
The theme song for the show I am looking for is on the tip of my tongue. It’s quite frustrating!
If anyone could help out, that would be great!
A friend pointed it out for me, it's Boumbo :)

Robert Fisk: How racism has invaded Canada
What is the term 'brown-skinned' doing on the front page of a major Canadian daily? Published: 10 June 2
This has been a good week to be in Canada - or an awful week, depending on your point of view - to understand just how irretrievably biased and potentially racist the Canadian press has become. For, after the arrest of 17 Canadian Muslims on "terrorism" charges, the Toronto Globe and Mail and, to a slightly lesser extent, the National Post, have indulged in an orgy of finger pointing that must reduce the chances of any fair trial and, at the same time, sow fear in the hearts of the country's more than 700,000 Muslims. In fact, if I were a Canadian Muslim right now, I'd already be checking the airline timetables for a flight out of town. Or is that the purpose of this press campaign?
The Independent, must subscribe to read the entire article...and...I'll do that later? I just got that link from the flist, and while I've heard of it, I think mentions on the radio, I have yet to really read about yet, my news outlet of choice usually being Toronto Star or CBC, it wasn't an urgent item of interest thing. Current Mood: tired and bored and busy

Canada's newest community radio station needs music, urgently
Imagine launching a radio station in a small island community. Imagine doing it with an empty CD library because your many pleas to record labels have been ignored, postponed, or not acted on in time. What does the music director of tiny Amherst Island Public Radio do? Tom Richmond went online and used peer-to-peer downloading to stock up the on-air computer!
CJAI is completely volunteer run, so maybe there wasn't someone pestering the labels when they received their construction permit from the CRTC in November 2005. Maybe the labels didn't have enough time to react. Despite some last-minute illegal file transfers ... the station launched last week.
"Things went remarkably well," writes Richmond in an e-mail to Mote. "We had our initial on-air date April 1, and we had a live music `fest with six acts on April 8th that was free. It went great, and we did a live remote broadcast of the show for 5 hours."
Despite their modest studio in an out-of-the-way location, CJAI has a bigger-than-expected reach. "The official community we serve is Stella, Ontario (the hamlet on Amherst Island) but we strive to cover the whole Island," explains Richmond. "We are heard acoss about 75-80 percent of it. Population of the Island is 400, BUT we are being heard across an area of approx. 10,000 right now in a densely populated area on the Mainland... Not bad for 5 watts, eh?"
Amherst Island is "about 3 hrs east of TO, 3 1/2 hours west of Montreal, 2 hours south of Ottawa, and 20 minutes west of Kingston, Ontario (plus a 20 minute ferry ride out into Lake Ontario)."
With such a small record library (aside from the unlimited cache of online downloads available), CJAI is looking for record labels to start sending music, and for anyone else to donate to their station. "We accept all formats of music, and we really like MP3's as we punch them into the computer and the logging and tracking become pretty effortless." So, send them a box of records, or burn a bunch of MP3s from your harddrive onto a CD and mail it to them. Their format is pretty open, but they would probably appreciate lots of Canadian music: the station plays 100% Canadian content on Saturday and Sunday from 6am til 6pm.
Tracking hours (times set aside where record labels can call and find someone to tell them how their CDs are charting) are Fridays from 2-5pm and 9pm-11pm. The mailing address is CJAI, 5830 Front Road, Stella, Ont, K0H2S0. Email: AIR@amherstisland.on.ca

The Privatization of the CBC

Indians ignore order to end occupation - Toronto Star
Current Front Page
Wow, is it just me, or did the usage of the term "Indian" in the title, really struck out, especially considering the context, which is land dispute. Aboriginal, means that they were originally here. "Indian" was first used by European explorers who mistook Canada for Asia, and subsequently took the land from the aboriginals...Indians ignore order to end occupation
Mar. 30, 2006. 07:00 PM
Aboriginal protesters occupying a southern Ontario construction site dismissed Thursday's police order aimed at removing them from the proposed subdivision as irrelevant.
ETA, weeks later: The Star did it again! Also used Indian in the headline, in reference to the natives.

Senator bites back
Rips anti-hunt family in U.S.
By KATHLEEN HARRIS, OTTAWA BUREAU
A seal pup nips at Heather Mills, wife of Paul McCartney, as the couple protest the seal hunt recently. A U.S. family who cancelled a holiday because of the “brutal” practice got an angry e-mail from Liberal Sen. Celine Hervieux-Payette. (CP file photo)
OTTAWA -- A Liberal senator is under fire for unleashing an anti-American rant on a U.S. family who cancelled a Canadian vacation because of the annual seal hunt.
The McLellans of Minnesota wrote to a cluster of senators outlining plans to boycott a planned holiday in Canada to protest what they viewed as a "brutal" practice. Quebec Sen. Celine Hervieux-Payette shot back with a strongly-worded e-mail response lashing out at American policy.
"What I find 'horrific' about your country is the daily killing of innocent people in Iraq, the execution of mainly black prisoners in the U.S., the massive sale of guns to U.S. citizens every day, the destabilization of the whole world by the aggressive foreign policy of U.S. government, etc.," she wrote.
Conservative Sen. Marjory LeBreton, the government leader in the Senate, said Hervieux-Payette's wrath proves "anti-Americanism" is alive and well in the Liberal Party and called for an apology for the U.S. "bashing."
"(U.S. Ambassador) Michael Wilson is probably going to have to spend some time next week explaining that this person who spoke out in this way is a member of the Liberal party, who were just defeated at the polls in Canada, to minimize any damage," she said.
Liberal Leader Bill Graham distanced himself from the comments, insisting they are "personal opinions," not party policy. But Hervieux-Payette has no regrets or apologies for her e-mail, insisting she is "really offended" by the family's threats of economic sanction.
"Look in your own backyard and start correcting things that are more horrific than the seal hunting in Canada," she told the Sun.
"People in Canada are sick and tired of threats and retaliation. We are a good neighbour and a good player, and I said to myself if she wants to improve some policies, she should do that in her own backyard.

Backtracking: Election season coverage
What was your network(s), and what impression did you get of the candidates through them?
How much coverage, if any at all, did your choice of network(s) give to any party beyond the four?
What did you think of CBC's misreporting of poll results posting laws?

Question about Media Bias
I'm doing a research for an Media Studies project.
And I was wondering:
+ what news/radio stations and newspapers in Canada are conservatively biased
+ what news/radio stations and newspapers in Canada are liberally biased
+ what news/radio stations and newspapers in Canada are (relatively) neutral
Thanks in advance!
