World Cup Sprints on CBC: Dec. 24th at 2:30pm
By:  Team XCOttawa.ca   (2005/12/21)


CBC is once again showing cross-country skiing on TV this weekend. Three weeks in a row? This must be some kind of Canadian television record!

Please boost the cause of expanded TV coverage by sending a personal message to CBC at cbctvsports@toronto.cbc.ca

In your message, please:

  • Congratulate CBC for providing coverage of these World Cup races;
  • recommend/request more extensive coverage - i.e. full and live coverage of each race, as is broadcast internationally;
  • request coverage of pre-Olympic World Cup races from Europe, to generate interest in the Olympics; and
  • request full race coverage of Olympic races.

Numbers count, so send a message after each race, and encourage your friends to join in the communication campaign. Hopefully we will see more skiing on TV in the future!
