I feel this issue has been forgotten by the public so lets asks the question?
Do you miss CBC Radio or CBC Television?
I asked the questions on a few occasions since the locked out began over 40 days ago.
I get the feeling that not too many people missed it.
Myself, I am a news freak and I always watch the news at 6:00pm! I changed the channel from ATV to Global news.
I forgot about CBC! Maybe it’s because I have other things on my mind?
Maybe as many other issues in life, I adjusted to a world without necessities? So maybe this is what's happening in this case?
One day, I noticed this guy communicating through the windows in the media building next to the Legislature.
Hey? I'm certain they wish to return to work!!!!
One person told me < female > that she truly missed CBC!
I might add the individual lives in na na land. She lives in the country < Queenstown > and I believe that CBC radio is the only connection in the rural areas.
Speaking of nowhere land?
I heard from many Acadians that they truly missed CBC in the north Shore.
This include Radio and Television.
I wanted to find out what was going on in this locked out?
I walked up Regent Street and met the protesters a couple of weeks ago.
I stayed with one of them for around 25 minutes and walked the picket line while asking questions.
The bottom line in this dispute is seniority.
Did you know the youngest worker who has seniority is 42 years old?
These workers are fighting for our future generations.
Management wish to hire workers by contract!
My God? Isn’t this Irving’s style? They better get rid of this picture?
You see? Management want to hire someone for a six month to a one year contract.
Do you know what this means?
Backstabbers and rats will be granted an extension to their contract.
In 20 years from now? There would be no seniority therefore no unions.
It would be a terrible atmosphere to work in!
It would be like working for the Irvings!
I’m surprised this locked out isn’t over yet because there seem to be MP’S stopping by in support of the workers.
So what do you think?
Do you miss CBC?
I truly miss people like this guy.
but most definetely not this guy on the left -
These days the workers are blogglers!!! Question? By being Blogglers? Did they increase or lowered their standards of Journalism? I say they climbed the ladder!!!!...lol

Chinese Govt. Tightens Its Grip on Online News
By The Associated Press
BEIJING -- China said today it is imposing new regulations to control content on its news Web sites and will allow the posting of only "healthy and civilized" news.
The move is part of China's ongoing efforts to police the country's 100-million Internet population. Only the United States, with 135 million users, has more.
The new rules take effect immediately and will "standardize the management of news and information" in the country, the official Xinhua News Agency said today.
Sites should only post news on current events and politics, according to the new regulations issued by the Ministry of Information Industry and China's cabinet, the State Council. The subjects that would be acceptable under those categories was not clear.
Only "healthy and civilized news and information that is beneficial to the improvement of the quality of the nation, beneficial to its economic development and conducive to social progress" will be allowed, Xinhua said.
"The sites are prohibited from spreading news and information that goes against state security and public interest," it added.
While the communist government encourages Internet use for education and business, it also blocks material it deems subversive or pornographic. Online dissidents who post items critical of the government, or those expressing opinions in chatrooms, are regularly arrested and charged under vaguely worded state security laws.
Earlier this month, a French media watchdog group said e-mail account information provided by Internet powerhouse Yahoo Inc. helped lead to the conviction and 10-year prison sentence of a Chinese journalist who had written about media restrictions in an e-mail.
As part of the wider effort to curb potential dissent, the government has also closed thousands of cybercafes -- the main entry to the Web for many Chinese unable to afford a computer at home.
Authorities in Shanghai have installed surveillance cameras and begun requiring visitors to Internet cafes to register with their official identity cards.
The government also recently threatened to shut down unregistered Web sites and blogs, the online diaries in which users post their thoughts for others to read.
