some vacation!

When you're a rural telecommuter, being locked out is a lonely business.

to boldly go

I just got a note from my producer, who is working in the CBC building today while I work from home.

It seems that sometime since last Friday, there have been advertisements installed in the washrooms at the CBC Broadcast Centre in Toronto. Yes, even on the second floor, where much of "commercial-free" CBC Radio lives.

So, this is how we're going to generate new revenues for the corporation? To sell the eyes and asses of our own employees to corporate advertisers?

We're in worse trouble than I thought.

Makes you wonder if they ever even approached the government about increasing the CBCs funding in the new budget. As of the Heritage Committee meeting they hadn't.

(By the way, I sent 2 emails to the Heritage Committee as well as to several MP's including Sam Bulte to request transcripts and received no response at all, not a yes, or a no - just no reply.)
