    I have a Shaw system. The technology is good but the programming is junk. It's not Shaw's fault, it's the CRTC and the force-feeding of Canadian channels that do nothing but buy American programming, instead of producing their own. By doing so, they lock out U.S. competition. Maybe the American negotiators, for the new NAFTA, should have something to say about this.
