CBC sees opportunity...I'm synical

The people over at the CBC say that the writers strike in the US will help boast Canadian TV. I think it's pretty obvious that rating of Canadian shows will go up during the strike but I don't buy their theory that it will continue when the strike ends.

Again the CBC's unofficial job is to be the cheerleaders of Canadian culture. If the problem was that people just weren't seeing Canadian tv there would have been lots of ways to fix it, such as buying publicity, premiering the shows earlier ect. I think the problem is more likely that the CBC isn't as good at creating TV programs as it thinks it is. Get the full version here
