I've seen these Canadian Tire Life insurance ads, and it just seems weird to get life insurance from a place like Canadian Tire... maybe it's just me.

I wouldn't want life insurance from a store that can't even change a car's oil properly.

What is it with Home Hardware and GM advertisements and people walking toward the camera while talking? Stop that. It's weird.

I laugh whenever I see those car company commercials that "demonstrate" how busy their dealership are. HA!

You just need the Canadian Tire Guy to convince you.

Anglos don’t know how lucky they are. The guy we got on the French ads was 100 times worse.

CBC cuts 800 jobs across Canada

The Canadian Press
http://www.thespec.com/News/BreakingNews/article/536660

MONTREAL — The cash-strapped CBC told employees today that it will be cutting 800 jobs in effort to save $171 million amid sinking advertising revenues.

Internal sources say CBC president Hubert Lacroix broke the news to staff at a town hall meeting in Montreal.

The plan is to cut 396 jobs in the English service, 336 on the French side, and 70 corporate service positions.

The public broadcaster also plans to sell $125 million in assets in a bid to balance its budget, workers were reportedly told.

In recent weeks, Lacroix has been warning of deep cuts to staff and programming to cope with a significant budget shortfall.

He has also said there will a salary freeze for top executives.

Why is it no matter where you are in North America if you turn on the local news you will see the same joke repeated over and over by the airhead news anchor, the joke is pretend the equally stupid weather person has some kind of magic power over the weather,it wasn't funny the first time and it's not funny the 1000th time.

Weather people somehow take credit for sunny days, and blame shit weather on other places (ie - disturbance from the south, arctic high pressure)

Also, weather segways are horrible, and make me cringe.

"speaking of uh... wet... uh.. doctors, how about that rainy forecast, Jim?"

I need to stop watching CTV.

No weather segues are more awkward than those on CBC New Brunswick at Six.

That's what happens when you hire an entertainment/human interest reporter to anchor the news.

I cannot beging to express my raging disdain for weather people and their arrogant reports. First of all don't need a feature-length weather update every fucking 10 minutes to remind me that its sunny outside. And I really don't give a crap what "weather-maker" mishmash is heading through factor A B or C. Just do your job and tell me if its cold or hot or its gonna rain or whatever the fuck and shut up!

It's been announced that last.fm will no longer be free in Canada. I guess only the US and UK matter to them now.

Oh fuck them. First Pandora and now Last? As long as links to download their music from blogs still works I'll be happy. I get about a fifth of what I listen to from Last.fm, even though I never go there. People link to it and you just right click and save as.

Haven't had to use file sharing programmes in years.

The version that is loaded on my computer still works.....the one where you enter either an 'artist' or a 'tag'...is that different from the radio version?

There is always jango.com

"And now back to Tracy in our E-Talk Toronto studio"

"Thanks Tanya"


E-Talk has a Toronto studio?
