It is indeed Codders. The fact that the US has ten times the population that we do, means that we are consistently bombarded by US media in all forms.
As I type this, it is Sunday morning. I am enjoying a mug of tea with the television on. If I am counting correctly, I receive about 48 channels, and of these, only about 16 are Canadian and of these, three are French lanuage. None of this is to say that we have anything against our southern neighbours what-so-ever. It is a very close relationship although we do sometimes disagree on matters of trade and world events...
The gradual erosion of our "culture" is probably inevitable unfortunately… although it will take many years I imagine!
