Sure, you like YouTube, but have you ever worried about its dearth of Canadian content? No? Well, anyway, as of last night, there’s now a YouTube.ca. (Kind of: its actual URL resolves to ca.youtube.com––good luck getting to YouTube.com proper anymore.) As The Globe and Mail reported today, the Canadian version of the American-run site will feature Canadian videos prominently in the site’s “featured videos” and “promoted videos” sections.
Whether this change signals a complete bottoming out of Canadian culture or only a marginal bottoming out of Canadian culture remains to be seen, but with any luck, it’ll be no time before we start seeing cute Canadian kids doing ballet to Soulja Boy. As long as the videos aren’t anything like YouTube’s own sooooo-awkward video announcing the change, we’ll be pretty happy.
