Shaw Hunts Canwest
Do we really need more ownership concentration in Canada? Particularly after Mr. Shaw went gunning for some of the more popular home-grown TV programming past and present in some of his remarks over the last couple of years?

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 Guide
Frequency 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.

Tune in!

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?
 ---- from 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

The Privatization of the CBC

Thanks a lot for your input.

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.


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!
