O Canada CBC Signoff Today (July 1) is Canada Day! Canada is now 141 years old. Allow me a little leeway to show my national pride. This is a pretty cool clip. It's the signoff which CBC Television used to conclude its broadcasting day. It blends O Canada with some native music while showcasing some of Canada's people, places, and natural beauty.

Canada Wins Gold Medal Time out for a little personal patriotic pride: Canada finally won its first Olympic gold medal today at the 2008 Beijing Olympics! It was won by 48-kilogram female freestyle wrestler Carol Huynh. She is the daughter of Vietnamese refugees who came to Canada in 1978. With the help of a church in Hazelton, British Columbia (population 1,500), the Huynhs managed to raise Carol and four other children. Carol's parents and husband were in attendance when she won her gold medal. Here's a CBC News clip of the happy event.

New Coke Debut 1985 This is a 1985 CBC report on the introduction of the less-than-beloved New Coke. I'm cynical enough to believe this whole New Coke business was a carefully orchestrated plot. Coca-Cola got millions of dollars of free advertising out of their self-made controversy.

Brian Spencer - Hockey Tragedy On December 12, 1970 Brian Spencer was elevated from the minor leagues to the Toronto Maple of Leafs of the NHL. Prior to the Leafs' game versus Chicago, Spencer phoned his father, Roy, in British Columbia to tell him the good news and advise him to watch that evening's Hockey Night In Canada broadcast on CBC television. When the elder Spencer attempted to watch the game, though, he discovered the CBC affiliates in British Columbia were showing the Vancouver Canucks' home game versus California instead of his son's game from Toronto. Incensed, Roy drove 85 miles to the nearest CBC affiliate in Prince George, BC. Threatening several employees at gunpoint, he demanded the station switch its coverage from the Canucks' game to Leafs' game. The station complied. However, when Roy Spencer attempted to leave the television station, he got into a gun battle with police and was shot and killed. The feisty Brian Spencer spent nearly a decade in the NHL, but descended into a lifestyle of cocaine addiction afterward. He himself was shot to death at age 38 in a drug deal gone wrong in Florida on June 3, 1988.

Benny Hill Before cable television we only had the three networks and channel 50 uhf. Then there was CBC channel 9 Windsor, Canada. Withe the Winter Olympics coming up in a few days I know what channel I'll be watching most. Channel 9 used to be only in the Windsor area now it is National. It stirred up a few people to say the least.
