Sorry about the rants, but I gotta add this one, for Terry Fox

September 18, 2005
I just wrote a letter to my member of parliment and I thought I would share part of it with you.  If any other Canadian thinks in a similar way, please write to your member of parliment or to the prime minister at
Dear my MP,
 I feel really sad "that the 25th anniversary of Terry Fox Marathon of Hope" was lessened for Canadians across the country because of the lockout at the CBC.  I have just read a story online about how there was supposed to be a coast to coast broadcast…
  …"One group, the Terry Fox Foundation run by Terry’s brother Darrell Fox, had been planning to mark the 25th anniversary of Terry’s Marathon of Hope in a momentous way today, September 16.  Together with the CBC, there was to be a multi-faceted national day of celebrations, involving children, teachers and community leaders — to be broadcast from coast to coast."
  which I read on the CMG website.  What a loss for Candians that this did not happen.  I miss the usual CBC broadcasts on radio and television.  Our Canadian culture and identity is worth more then saving a few dollars to contract out new employees.  Please see that this lockout does not drag on and on.
