You Won’t Hear this on the News - Episode10/Cross Talk Season5 Extra

August 25, 2021

On Emancipation Day.  Suppose it's the first time Canada officially commemorates Emancipation Day as a national holiday.  That would be on the news that day, would it not? I think news coverage was severely lacking.  Not a word in some major newspapers that weekend.  Almost nothing on broadcast news or newsroom social media.  Why not?  Do we just not want to know what it's really about?  From August 5th 2021, having waited a few days after August 1st to see whether follow-up coverage came.  Unscripted.
