On Wednesday, the CRTC issued a reprimand saying against three channels for failing to reach the required 35% threshold for Canadian content
I am very happy that the Canadian Government has taken time to regulate this key area that is vital to our nation as a whole. (No hole puns intended.)
Never mind inspecting the railroads to prevent another Lac-Megantic disaster, or inspecting commercial aircraft to ensure they are safe. And, never mind federalizing our airport screeners. Does it matter that a private sector airport screener literally handed a bomb back to a passenger? I think not!

No these issues are truly not important enough to warrant federal action. (Even though these issues are all within federal jurisdiction.) These issues don’t keep Canadians awake at night. However the level of Canadian content in pornography is clearly of vital importance to all Canadians. Also it is vital that the pornography be properly subtitled for the hearing impaired. We must ensure that the people writing the subtitles ensure that each grunt, and orgasmic O is subtitled, and preferably translated from English to French.
