Just a reminder that Canadian Idol will be in St. John's on Wednesday. As per this manifesto last month, I'm calling on all reasonable and sane Newfoundlanders to boycott the show. That means starting with the tryouts. The fewer that show-up and try to get on the show, the better.
I stated that fighting the influence of Canadian Idol is an important step to regaining some provincial dignity at the national level. I still believe that. Perhaps it's not up there in importance of the current battle between the premier and prime minister, but there's little that can be done on that until there is either a provincial or federal election. Here's our first small step towards some semblance of provincial sanity by ignoring this show.
If enough people come to their sense about Canadian Idol, who knows what other revelations might happen to them. Perhaps they might even come to reject other idols in the province as well.
Dare to dream.
