isn't it evident? i inferred it from your statement that i quoted which you responded to dramatically.

if i were wrong you should have stated so instead of getting 'butthurt' as you put it.

you inferred wrong. And i'm telling you that you inferred wrong now, previously you didn't say that i said i couldn't relate because i said so, you just made the statement, which you are free to do, whether that is, in fact, correct of not.

i have nothing more to say to you as you'll just continue to put random words together in attempts to fuel your position.

facts:
- cbc sucks donkey balls, only hockey is good on this channel
- i can get my news from literally any other outlet
- cbc original programming is so bad, i dont understand who would be retarded enough to actually watch it (lil mosque on the prarie)

whereas hydro employees are busting their balls to get clean sustainable energy provided for us, cbc just produces and airs crap

honestly, they are WAYYY behind in terms of programming.

like PBS, materplace with Downton Abbey, its like bye bye, CBC doesnt even have a show half that level. It's like Walking Dead VS Game of Thrones

The bottom line is no one will notice outside of HNIC once it's been gone for 5 years

Ratings don`t mean something is good though, it just means people watch it

100% agreed. The CBC losing funding is a fucking disgrace

I just want more players in the television game then Bell and Rogers and Shaw. Bell owns CTV, BNN, TSN. Rogers owns CityTV, Chum, sportsnet etc. Shaw owns global.

we just need more players so it's not like the Wireless industry with "the BIG 3"

Corner gas is a ctv show. And it's a pretty decent show too.
Good riddance to cbc though. Aslong as hnic remains on my free xbox live programming I'll be happy. But they better stay the hell away from mah cbc radio. Only station I can stand these days, mostly because of the lack of commercials and the tough questions it asks it's guests and it's listeners.
