Al Jazeera English coming to Canada

AJE has reached agreement with BCE, Rogers and Videotron to be carried on their cable/satellite operations (AJE has already received CRTC permission to broadcast in Canada). This is good news: another news medium and one that is distinctly more international than The parochial and understaffed North American networks, cable or otherwise. AJE is not to be confused with AJA, Al Jazeera Arabic, which has been charged with anti-Semitism and support for Al Quaeda. It’s worth a look, but I’m sure Canada’s Jewish community will be scrutinizing it very carefully for the kind of biases its sister channel takes.
