CBC is in the midst of a crippling job action. The Globe and Mail reports today that CBC has had to throw advertisers a bone to make up for plummeting viewership in recent weeks. Under normal circumstances, I enjoy CBC radio and television programming, but who wants to watch their reruns? I notice now that at least the news section of the CBC web site is down. Are the CBC IT staff on strike as well, or are they just dealing with the impact of the Zotob worm like everyone else?
Update (a few minutes later): The CBC web site is working fine now.
