Hot off the trails of the Chinese Government unblocking access to www.CBC.ca, an interesting thing has occurred.
On Sunday, there was a pro-Beijing demonstration on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, where over 6,000 people gathered to support the Olympics. The Ottawa Citizen covered it extensively. As did the Star. But the CBC website? Nothing on the main page. The only search item that popped up in the archives was a year-old piece by Rex Murphy.
Could this perhaps be a China-neutral strategy being played by our public broadcaster? In turn, next we won't hear anything about lead toys, tainted dog food and civilian beatings. Gotta love the CBC at tax time…
