Hold a referendum

My point - sell CRTV.

Every member needs a vote not a town meeting of uptown socialites that have the time to flood that meeting at the Tidemark – most of which were overpaid teachers that like watching themselves and their useless productions on Channel 10.

I have never seen a more useless cable broadcasting station in Canada.

Basic rates: two religious channels, two CBC channels, some Punjabi and Asian news channel, two channels with the same signal (?), two CNN channels, channels with second rate reruns of TV productions, 12 hours of nightime commercials, etc., etc., etc.

CRTV should hold a referendum included with our next billings. I bet 90 per cent would vote to sell it. Give me the $3,000, I’ve got bills to pay and maybe I’ll hook up to satelite. I’m sure the teachers can sell their productions on DVD and I’m sure Shaw cable will do a better job.
