How lucky we are to live near the Canadian border, where we can receive news that is not colored by our own cultural biases. Rather, we can watch and listen to reports about how a foreign country views our actions and the actions of the rest of the world. These views are often very different than what we get from our news outlets. Generally, I find Canadian news content more worldly, less xenophobic and more varied than what we get on our news channels.
If you’ve never watched it, go tune in CBC’s The National, on at 10 PM; it is well worth viewing. The news program is much more than just about Canada.
