Just on P&P. Nanos was on and said his number is 55. that is 55%, 55% of Canadians are negatively disposed to taxes. And the CBC guy said well isn't this a threat to the NDP? Don't they have to be carefull now. Then cut away to Harper teling the Europeans auteriy,austerity, austerity. I hate the CBC. Isn't there anyone there who isn't going to side with economic current wisdon? What a load of you know what!

I don't understand why you condemn the entire the entire CBC on the basis on what one person says. I love the CBC, always have. Yes, there are those who turn me off, but the plusses far outweight the negatives for me, Arthur. I much prefer CBC to either CTV or Global, but even those networks occasionally have worthwhile programming. CBC is the network for David Suzuki, and the home of Melissa Fung and Adrienne Arsenault - some of the finest names in network news and documentaries - period.

I for one prefer netflix to all three of them. TV stations are the past, Netflix and hulu and others along with youtube are the future.

When Buzz Hargrove gave Paul Martin a union jacket, the gesture was as tainted as the Liberal brand itself-- and that perception lingers. When union leaders actively identify with the corporate establishment as a peer group, the movement becomes a sham. Labour leaders hobnobbing with the establishment may be good for business, but it only serves to remind the rank and file that they're less than chattels in the grand scheme of politics.
