    What is truth in that article? The fact that there is a lot of people who are getting grey-area dishes and the Canadian satellite providers are suffering.
    I think that it is a combonation of the 'Yankee Dish' effect, the pressure that media owners can bring on the goverment and the 'ethnic' cable companies are colateral damage. Its not like the majority of Canadians will ever watch them. But, the government has no control over the content of these 'ethnic' cable stations, and that aways makes them nervous.

    Oh, and we shouldn't pick on mpetrie- just let him use his Web-TV, and bask in its powerfull glow.:blowkiss:

    haha, thanks man. Canadians are funny people. They have such strange politics. I was actually thinking of moving there.

    I dont think many Americans take me seriously, and i know that many americans dont take Canadians seriously so i think we would have something in common.

    Yes, it's time for me to be an ******* yet again. ;)

    Funny people? Do I seem "funny" to you? :eek:

    And I wouldn't say that our politics are strange. We use the British parlementary system.

    This is where I agree with you. ;)
    This is where my signature would go had my host not been such a Bandwidth Nazi.
