(June 1, 2010) Ex-Corner Gas actor Eric Peterson and others from ACTRA, the union representing Canadian talent, protest outside the Hazelton Hotel in Toronto. In the hotel, Canwest broadcasting was unveiling it’s fall line-up of television programming to the media. Those protesting outside feel broadcasters in Canada are not producing enough Canadian made content.
