Approved!

As their token anti-war, anti-gun, anti-Ford-Hudak-Harper, pro-UN, pro-choice, pro-gay marriage secular Communist, I now look forward to duking it out on air!

The Commission approves an application by TVA Group Inc., on behalf of itself and Sun Media Corporation, partners in a general partnership to be constituted and to carry on business as Sun TV News General Partnership, for a broadcasting licence to operate Sun TV News, a national, English-language Category 2 specialty service that will be subject to the standard conditions of licence, expectations and encouragement for competitive mainstream national news services set out in Broadcasting Regulatory Policy 2009-562-1.

    So what’s the deal, is it must carry?

    Me too – I think it will be great. You and hopefully others like you will provide fairness. Maybe now we will see balanced conversations by pundits from the right and the left – they are few and far between at the moment.
    Can you please get them to discuss publicly funded broadcasting and the CBC’s refusal to discuss their budget expenditures fully or respond to access to information requests? I’d like to see/hear a really good discussion on that topic.
    I’d also like to see/hear a good informative debate on the value of the vote subsidy payment to political parties and whether the taxpayer should be footing the bill for that.

    Oh heavens – what wil Margaret Atwood say? Allowing the right wing to speak will cause the very foundation of Canada to be rattled to its core! We can’t let all those dumb Canadians be influenced by the evils of “Fox News North”. etc, etc..

    Good on you, Warren, for being part of this new station. I look forward to some actual discourse, maybe even on (dare I say?) politically-incorrect subjects.

    We have elections coming and Warren will be in the midst of enemy territory. This is going to be interesting.

    Could they at least not call it NEWS? Perhaps:
    ” All Opinions All The Time?”
    or
    “Through a Glass Darkly?”

      It was a dark and stormy night when Warren set forth to demolish the dragons on his right. Don’t go sayeth his associates. Those dragons are devious. If they fail to defeat you, they will try to co-opt you. Warren retorted “remember, there is nothing to fear but fear itself”. Those dragons on my right are not as fearsome as the dragons at Rogers. Thus began the saga of Warren and the dragons of Sun TV. Stay tuned! Will Warren eventually resign, or will he reign triumphant over the airwaves?
