Le maudit CBC

In a break from watching the two-part CBC special on the 1995 referendum, I decided to check out the program's website.

It's pretty thin in many respects.

Then I came across the bit titled "Tobin takes charge". Scary thought that it is.

But try this little quote on for size:

"From Halifax to Victoria, a huge campaign is organized: thousands of Canadians send postcards to Quebecers with messages of friendship, pleading with them not to give up their country." [Emphasis added]

Was this written by someone whose memory stopped on 31 March 1949?

I trust the rest of the program does not suffer from a similar lack of adequate research.
