Bruce and Boomer, On the Road

The relationship between Bruce (anchor) and Boomer (weather) on Compass, our local CBC television news, one that I characterized in its early days, has graduated to a new level: they’re now vacationing together — in Rimouski of all places!

Boomer did the weather live from Rimouski tonight, with Bruce making a cameo appearance. They are there for a hockey game with father (Bruce) and son (Boomer) in tow.

The nature of Islanders’ relationship with their weatherman provides a fascinating look into Island sociology: despite our better judgment, we find him endearing, and look forward to watching him on Compass every night. It makes no sense.

Travel well, boys.

By the way, if you’re looking for a way to keep the Compass in Compass, you now need look no further.
