Heather Mallick's latest column on how new Canadians can learn to like it here falls short. If she really thinks all it takes to make immigrants feel at home in Canada is a conversation with a pharmacist at a Shoppers Drug Mart or getting lost at a Canadian Tire franchise, perhaps she is living in a bubble.

If Steve Paikin Wants Women On His Show, Maybe He Should Stop Insulting Them

Paikin offers up another reason women guests are so hard to come by, and this one will floor you. He says "we've also discovered there also seems to be something in women's DNA that makes them harder to book." I think the last time I read something along those lines was in my undergraduate women's studies critical theory course, but it was something written in the 1800's. According to Paikin: "No man will say, "Sorry, can't do your show tonight, my roots are showing." I'm sure these words will find their way in a women's studies course someday too, to be picked apart by clever students who won't believe for a second it was written in 2014.

Neither American Idol nor any of the crazy reality shows would ever measure up to this great public program that I have come to respect and appreciate. By watching great programming like The Agenda, my interest in Canadian history and politics has become more entrenched.

TVO, for the past 21 years has been home to one of Canada's top journalistic interviewer/hosts. The host's name is Steve Paikin. So who the hell is this Hamlin Grange to tell Paikin how to improve the sainted Agenda? Right up front on his own program!
