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.
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...

If you're checking this thread for a Kurt Angle update -- they re-run his No Surrender promo; no live appearance. At the end of the show, Cornette announces that Angle will be the "Ringside Enforcer" for the Sting vs. Jarrett match.
