There’s no secret about it. Torontoist loves the CBC, so this strike is hurting us. A lot. We miss Promo Girl, we miss Peter Mansbridge, Ian Handsomemansing, we even miss how Randy Bachman prattles on about CanCon. Sure we’ve been getting our CBC fix from sites like this but we want this lockout to end soon. So in the spirit of the Simpsons, we’re sending our love down the errr picket line.
Actually this free love-in is being organized by Garvia Bailey and Tori Allen who, like the rest of the corp, have been locked out. The lineup includes local artists such as Masia One(pictured here on the right), K’naan, and Jon-Rae Fletcher. DJs and CBC picketers will be rounding out the entertainment. Show starts at 1:00pm this afternoon and will go till shortly after 7:30 right in front of the big CBC building at 205 Front St. West.
