Deux Sollicitudes

From blogger Picket in the Park:

"...when the media talks about the "labour dispute" at the CBC, many of them are quick to say that this affects only English Television and Radio, since our colleagues in Qu├ębec belong to a different union (or unions to be exact). This frustrates me because they fail to realize or take into account that every CBC location across the country has the Radio-Canada counterpart."

Canadian francophones outside of Quebec probably depend on Radio Canada even more than their English Canadian counterparts. Most francophones outside of Quebec are probably at least somewhat bilingual (that's just a guess) but still I imagine the elimination of this service rankles considerably.

On the other hand, Quebec English-language programming is still on the air, for which I'm very thankful as a Quebec anglo.

Yes, different union, although they've had their problems in the past.
