Okay, CBC employees.... get back to work.
I'm as pro-labour as it gets, but if I have to hear another "encore" performance of Mae Moore live and unplugged at the Cabbagetown Studios, I'm gonna snap.

This is worse than the early 80s CBC-TV strike, when they just kept repeating the same episodes of "This is the Law" and "Front Page Challenge" until the technicians returned to work.

7. yes! I am ultra chuffed!
When I started watching CBC was 3 months behind (1991). We lost CBC here for about 3 (long, dark) years (god I hate my cable company, Belo Broadcasting and KING 5 for that) and it was way behind. Then the dark days of the Olympics and other sport craptulars-Arghhhh!
Finally! catch up time!
:woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

My wife has been addicted for years. She doesn't mind the strike one bit.

3. No way! If they go back, then we will no longer get two episodes of
Coronation Street during the weekdays. Down with management!
