Canadians in here (again)

I got an answer from my satellite provider about having US channels directly in Canada.

There is a formal petition to the CRTC, Starchoice is one of the companies asking for that, they want to be able to have ESPN, Fox News, HBO and Showcase (maybe some more).

They want the CRTC to authorize that and they are asking people to send a petition,

go to http://www.start.shaw.ca/ click on the HBO link and you can fill and send an online petition to the CRTC.

I know there are some heavy weights behind this so it can work, of course we won't get the YEC this year (unless TSN gets scared) but we can at least get ESPN next year, not that ESPN is great but compared to TSNshit and Rogers Sportscrap it's fantastic!

Showcase rules! Especially Sunday night. 2 episodes of Trailer Park Boys, Six Feet Under, and Is Harry On The Boat.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

Formal petition has been denied. Apparently the emperor was unimpressed with the case his serfs brought before him.

Seriously, I was rather dissapointed by coverage that TSN and Sportcenter provided when I haded over two years ago. I couldn't wait to cancel that shit. Canada is a leading country in my opinion internationally in all aspects, and should have decent sport channels
Yes, Hockey and Baseball are big in Canada, but they are not the only sports. If Canada wants to produce other sports starts they will have to let people know that the sports actually EXIST here!!
I have Espn now, I encourage all Canadians to boycott Tsn And SC by getting a satellite.
They pissed me off sooooo much when I had it. I remember them having on the schedule the Indian Wells Querters between Lindsay and Serena, and the finals between Kim and Serena, needless to say, they did not show it.
