It was my pleasure

I'm glad you appreciated it. I think hers is one of the better political minds out there. (She's also nerdy and fun to have a pint with.)

Wondering who at CBC upper management during those days would've been...sufficiently ill-advised, shall we say?...to suggest such a thing. Granted that Stursberg was in charge of English-language services in general back then...but I can't see this coming straight from his desk.

Now as to why the series got forced off the CBC schedule and into Space's hands...the conspiracy theory there re: certain members of the Conservative caucus objecting to showrunner Davies, actor John Barrowman and others on "moral" grounds is one I find more believable. Not sure if we'll ever know for certain about that, though.

Maybe just a blue-sky idea?

I rather suspect the story's been blown out of proportion. More likely, it was just offered as an idle thought during a phone conversation or something.
