Greenpeace, complete with testimonials,

petition. What’s it all about? The feud between cable companies
and conventional broadcasters masks the fact that both industries are

Toughill post, it seems CTV is still turning a healthy profit. Meanwhile, television viewer Fagstein blogs that

is being spent on American programming and executive salaries.
Yet more evidence of that ingrained Canadian tendency to take local heros with a grain of salt.
