Great, yet another imitation of a US product; this time it's CNN's "Crossfire".

For all the money spent on "Canadian culture", one might think that something new and original can be created. Looks like all that money was wasted.

Far from creating a separate identity, Canada is just a poor copy of the US. This is what happens when government is allowed to meddle in culture.

Get rid of the CBC, Nazi Film Board and the entire concept of "Canadian Culture" now! Put the money towards medicare. While at it, scrap foreign ownership restrictions too - they protect profits and institutions, not promote things.

I'm with you Scott, but isn't this a CanWest thing, not the CBC?
I doubt Global gets much federal cash.. :)
