This story sums up everything that’s wrong with Canada: Government control of free speech combined with affirmative action:
An Edmonton-based adult film producer has won federal government approval for a new pornography channel with an unusual twist: half of the content is to be Canadian.

In addition to hardcore pornography, he says he is big on “making fun of the porn industry,” and that Northern Peaks will feature tongue-in-cheek reality programming that shows the “ridiculous” side of the business.
