Since females make up 52% of the population, can women pundits be so difficult to find? In a city oozing with competent women in practically every field of activity, it begs the question: how hard are TVO's The Agenda producers really trying?

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!
Events like this would never happen if accessing mental health services was as easy as getting guns. Canadians should not feel sanctimonious about this tragedy. The problem is not only guns. What we do share with our grieving cousins south of the border is a lack of access to appropriate mental health services.
