While on the go, I was listening to CBC radio. The host of Q has been replaced by a rapper named Shad, short for Shadrach. Anna Maria Tremonti interviewed him, yesterday. He seemed likable. His parents were refugees in Africa most of their lives; this is how he came to be born in Kenya.
The CBC comes under a lot of criticism, but I have to say that it has enriched my life greatly. When I first came to Canada, I learned proper English speech from it, fluently and intelligently spoken on air. I learned about politics, writers and musicians, all with the mandatory Canadian content.
I wish Shad well.
