The CBC news crew did show up here yesterday afternoon...and when I saw the cameraman setting up...I voiced my strong objections. I had my opinions all right...and I saw what was happening on the freeway next to our farm...but there is no way I would go on camera and tell all of Canada about it.

Enjoy your weekend...
