Not With A Bang, But A Shilling.


The CBC in BC is running its student intern program (or a sort) again.

Which is laudable, I reckon.

What is not so laudable, by my reckoning anyway, is the fact that is being used as a shillophantic platform for 'Sylvan Learning Centers'.


Regardless whether or not you like what Sylvan is selling (ie. private, cookie-cutter, franchised 'tutoring' and 'more'), the real issue here is that this is, essentially advertising on the Ceeb, including the radio.

And the edge of that wedge does not look so thin from where my ears are sitting.
