Embarrassingly Poor Local New Years' Coverage

It's getting down to about ten minutes to midnight, so we stop our movie and go hunting for some local flavour of celebration on the television with which to count down to midnight.

We looked around, and we found...


Not a thing! City TV was broadcasting footage from Toronto, two hours earlier. CBC just gave us time-shifted The Hour with George Stroumboulopoulos... also from Toronto. The stateside stations from the west coast were still quivering in anticipation of the midnight an hour and a tick yet hence.

Flicked all the way up the dial. Nothing.

Was there a reason for this? Were there no cameras pointing at Bright Night New Year's Eve downtown?

What the hell?
