From 411Wrestling, who got it from 1Wrestling:

We have gotten a lot of email from angry Canadian fans about Bell Express Vu not airing the NWA: TNA PPV last night. The reason was that apparently taped PPVs in Canada have to have a certain amount of Canadians in them. NWA: TNA will be airing live from now on so the show will air each week on Bell Express Vu.

Okay, I know the Canadian government has a certain impetus to promote and develop a "national culture", and it effects their broadcast laws, but can someone from the great white north explain why they distinguish between taped and live shows in this?

I don't really understand what Debaser said but I agree with him.

This law was created by Prime Minister Lance Storm, and it shall be followed without discussion!
There is no explanation, other than the CRTC is so politcal and so unbelievably screwed up, they'll probably take all Pokémon shows off the air unless one of them is deemed Canadian and says "Pee Ka Chew, eh?" at least twice a week.

One can only hope.

I'm halfway convinced that the Pokémon craze is Japan's revenge for Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We nuked them back in '45, so 55 years later they use Pokémon and Digimon and Dragonball Z and stuff to brainwash the next generation of Americans.

“Pee Ka Chew, eh?” What's that all aboot? LOL...

Don't go dissing on Dragon Ball Z. It's the Americans who ruined it with loads of censorship and bad dubbing.

*Laughs* Yeah, Dragonball Z is pretty lame... I'm a reformed addict myself.

So, they will be airing them here from now on, eh? Good... I was a big fan of the first one, and I was really upset that I couldn't get the second.

Maybe if Videotron picks it up, I'll be able to watch it from home!!! ... Though, that's rather unlikely... I hate Quebec cable...

I've been away on a last-second assignment for the past few days, but I've now returned, watched SD, and have almost no energy for the full recap, so here's the brief rundown:
