  1. apparently CTV Edmonton will be going HD very soon – maybe this week… but will Bell TV carry it? what channel will it be on? will it replace the CTV Calgary HD channel? who cares?!?! =p (i do… i love HD)

  2. Mac… I saw Hail Mary this week, and wrote a preview on Gig City. It’s excellent, a real quality program from Edmonton’s Anaid Productions. Too bad CITY dumped it at 10 pm on Saturday, but it’s certainly worth PVRing. (On another matter, I enjoyed the Examiner’s story on the new CKUA building, and its reference to “big band musician” Glen Gould.

  3. Some excellent points in that anonymous comments article. I also believe that engagement is the best way to raise the level of debate. There will always be a few trolls you’ll have to ban (perhaps a few times from a few different emails) but conversation is going to make the debate better.

    It will also make the stories and opinion pieces better because journalists won’t be able to simply print and move on, they’ll have to explain and justify the story.

    And this point is one I suspect Postmedia never considered:

    “And journalists clearly understand the power dynamics of our society and
    the important role anonymity plays in balancing them this is why they
    use anonymous sources to get scoops and dig up stories. So how
    newspapers as an institution, and journalists as a profession see
    narrowing the opportunity for those most marginalized to challenge power
    and authority in the comments section as being consistent with their
    mission, I cannot explain.”
