This year is also the 10th annivesary, on May 30th, of the last episode of Morningside. I know this in part because it’s also the 10th anniversary of the opening of the Confederation Bridge; we listened to the entire final Morningside while lined up on the Trans-Canada Highway on our way to Borden for the opening. I can’t drive that stretch of highway without thinking of that day and the show and its host.
I’ve recently become addicted to re-runs of the old CBC drama Street Legal (I think I’ve won Oliver over; Catherine has her doubts about the utility of reliving the 1980s); last week there was an episode that guest-starred both Peter Gzowski and Gordon Pinsent. I dare say there’s never been a more Canadian moment on television.
