I love Canada because.......

....they have their priorities in the right place

Canada is in the throes of a Federal Election Campaign. There are two televised debates to take place this week.....One in English - tomorrow and One in French - originally planned for Thursday.

Here is the glitch.... the French debate was scheduled to take place on the same night as the 1st game of the Stanley Cup playoffs between the Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens.

CBC television, bless it's heart, knows that there is no way a debate can compete with Stanley Cup playoff action.....rescheduled the debate for Wednesday

I love Canada

Nooooo....you love CBC.

Yet another good reason the "depose the despots" given that they would just as soon gut the CBC entirely.

I do love the CBC...it's free, kinda, sorta.

I so hope the gutters of the CBC go back from whence they came....

O.K. - sounds like a plan but I have to eat my Knorr frozen dinner with a side order of croissants first.

The sad part is, the date of the debate could be changed because of the hockey conflict, BUT they still wouldn't allow Elizabeth May to take part in the debate. Personally, I also think they did not address some pretty important subjects.
