The War to Save Local TV – Hmm…..

The War to Save Local TV – Hmm…..

Local TV doesn’t really exist.   Today most “local stations” are owned by Corporate Chains.  Look at the logo above.  All of those companies own national chains including our Government owned CBC.

New Harper Attack Ads against Mr. Ignatieff

New Harper Attack Ads against Mr. Ignatieff

A new attack ad is being released by the Harper Government. No, I’m not going to link to it or show the clip. I tell you, if this government spent as much time, resources, and talent on the economy and governing this country than they do on nasty ads our country would probably have almost […]

Yes, the lawyers are getting richer from this case and the fans suffer. To me, in my opinion, the only […]
