Supporting Local Television

We get it CTV. You're broke. Bell Globe Media had a terrible fiscal year (more appropriately the paper biz had a terrible year), and everything's tight. However, those beg-a-thon ads need to stop. You don't hear CanWest/Global crying like a child. You don't produce local content, unless you consider two fundraisers a year and the nightly newscast that chronicles the stories from everywhere but Halifax (Upper Jemseg is a pretty hopping place from what I hear, plus all of those handy-dandy wire stories from ABC or CNN) local. Not to mention, all of those "CTV original programming" shows produced at HQ in Toronto. Oh, wait. Are those Conservative/NDP/Liberal attack ads locally produced? Maybe I should rethink this...
