Musings of a Canadian Slacker

Sunday, October 17, 2004
The CBC begins its series on "The Greatest Canadian" tonight. The part of it that I saw is a bit more than strange. Who decided that Bret Hart would make an appropriate advocate for this? The descriptions of Louis Riel as "the Che Guevara of the North" (Wendy Mesley) and "the Nelson Mandela of the Metis" (Murray McLauchlan) are more than a little much. Pretty classic CBC, I'd guess.
