Channel surfing as I sipped Buckley's, I came across boxing on the CBC's French service last night - an entire night of championship boxing from the Molson Centre, home of the Montreal Canadians. It was like stepping back 30 years watching properly produced boxing on broadcast TV. Not a hint of political correctness enhanced by the balanced and high-level of the boxers. The Jean Pascal fight was particularly good to see - plenty of skill and respect going both ways with the local champ winning an unanimous decision. Now I'm going to have to follow Fight News Canada.
Chances such a thing would be shown on the English language service. Zippo.
