    Arrow Yes we did have Stern

    We did have him but the CRTC intervene and the media did not approuve (was that a surprise?) and his career in Canada was short lived: "Stern had a short run on Toronto's Q-107 and Montreal's CHOM-FM, which broadcast him on a 10-minute delay. Both stations eventually dropped the show." cbc.ca

    Yeah, but I'm pretty sure that with satellite radio, anyone who's subscribed to it can listen to him. I know the café where I often go to has satellite radio, so I would assume they could listen to him if they chose to.

    Talking On T.V. now

    Actually they broadcast him on T.V. too if I am not wrong. With T.V. the show is even more controversial with girls naked and mud fights between a stripper and a midget, interviews with Christian Slater and his trip to clubs, etc.

    Shocked

    I am shocked that there is so much censorship even up in Montreal. I would have figured you guys are so much more liberal than us.

    Greetings,

    I do not believe its any lack of liberism on Canada's part for Stern's removal. Let's be honest trash talk is what only defines his show, after a while its quite boring. I'll bet low audience rating did him.

    My 2 cents
    Do it for pleasure, do it for exaltation, do it
    Justforfun

    We are liberal but we also have rule and régulation and Stern did not obey the rule crtc just did the same to a talk show host in Quebec city

    The Attitude era (just like any other eras mind you) gave us plenty of craptacular stuff...you know things were bad when King Mabel and Phineas Godwinn were given Goth gimmicks.

    Exclamation sirius blocking?

    I apologize disrupting anyone by posting "on-topic", but earlier this week Howard and some listeners said that his sirius sattelite channels would be blocked to canadian subscribers due to the government. He encouraged canadians to complain to thier government who apparently allow all sorts of porn, but seem to have a problem with stern. I recall that this stemmed from stern's comments regarding the French people during the 9-11 times when France's position regarding the us policies was unpopular among media types.

    This is why I brought up the topic.. after I was listening to Stern the other morning. Granted I am not a huge fan.. but free speech is free speech.. and if the FCC is so bad with it here. I do not see why there should be such great injustice for our neighbors to the North

    Fuck Canada And The Crtc

    The assholes in the CRTC have it in for Stern much like the FCC does in the US.
    These fucking assholes are playing GOD and programme directors for you.
    Go down to the states and pick up the hardware you need to get Stern form there.
    Fuck this country and the lack of choices available.
    But we can have CHOM with the lamest radio show featuring lame ass banter and them laughing hysterically at each other. They should shut it down cuz they have no listenership. You can verify this throught the ratings books. Stern had the ratings. Notice how the GAzette doesn't publish any more the ratings when they come out. The montreal media share this pathetic pie. The CRTC blackmailed the owners- get him off and we will have consideration for the other piles on our desk of applications for radio station and television channels you have before us. Brutal. The same 17 songs over and over. It is a mess. A low budget piece of shit. These dj dummies make less thatn minumum wage and have to beg for scraps of food form sponsors. But they are in bed and SUCKING THE CRTC boards cocks.
