Was half-listening to "The House" on CBC Radio this morning where they interviewed one of the news anchors from Canwest Global's Hamilton TV station.
She was talking about a campaign to turn it into what it was when it went on the air in the 1950's as CHCH-TV ... a community-based independent television station.
Also, listened online to Howard Hampton's fairwell speech to the Ontario NDP Convention. He plays hockey with the reporters from the Toronto Sun. At the tail end of his speech, Hampton mentioned that one of the Toronto Sun staff spoke to him about turning the paper into a worker-owned cooperative!
I remember the campaigns by the labour movement to have Toronto Sun boxes removed from the front of workplaces because of their anti-union propaganda. From right-wing anti-union rag to worker-owned cooperative? Is this possible?
We do live in interesting times!
