As most Canucks and some US brothers and sisters will know, CBC employees are currently locked out across Canada. The issue is around contracting out work, not wages. Shelagh Rogers, one of our most-loved (okay, she's been accused of being far to nice and laughing too much, but I love her) broadcasters is driving across the country boosting morale on the picket lines and blogging away at this link .
It seems like dark days are upon us in many ways (from Katrina to Darfur to the US Supreme Court tilt...) What do we need to get through these days? Humour (see post below). Information and insight (see CBC and blogs). Solidarity and dignity...see the mirror and act on your convictions.
I'm hoping the voting pendulum will swing during mid-term elections - any chance?
