True, but that “Kilroy” thing does look a bit like “the Rabbit”…
Just another day in Canada, 2008, where, any minute now apparently, citizens will start hatcheting each other with machetes unless exquisitely enlightened government bureaucrats are around to protect them from each other:
The CRTC — the same agency that recently gave two thumbs-up to a homegrown Canadian porn TV network — has nixed two applications for Christian radio stations in the Ottawa area, and that has left some supporters of the religious proposals very unhappy.
(…) the CRTC requires balance in religious broadcasting. Christian music doesn’t have to be offset with, say, Jewish or Muslim music, but Christian talk programs must be countered with discussion about other faiths. Announcers at CHRI find themselves in the bizarre situation of working for a Christian station without being able to talk much about Christianity for fear of triggering the “balance” issue.
“We are disturbed by the extent of social, cultural, and racial intolerance which is often rooted in religious intolerance,” [the CRTC] cautioned. “One need only look to Bosnia, the Middle East, India, Northern Ireland, South Africa and other world ‘trouble spots’ to observe this phenomenon in its most violent form. Such cultural and racial intolerance is less dramatic and violent, but no less real, in Canada.”
