Happy Birthday Alberta

It’s with regret that I report that Alberta’s CBC stations will NOT be covering the centennial celebrations. With a special broadcast planned with remotes from all over the province, certainly we would have covered all aspects of this once in a lifetime celebration. It’s embarrassing to admit that a station that has almost every historical provincial moment in its archives will NOT have one ounce of footage from the centennial. From now on, whenever we refer to the centennial in our broadcast, we will have NO FREAKIN PICTURES of anything. Maybe I’ll ask Kathy Z to photoshop a picture of Ralph Klein jumping out of a birthday cake to create a still we can use in any centennial – referenced story.
I read an interesting commentary today by former CBC important-guy Jack McAndrew. I posted the link in the appropriate column.
