How does Canadian drama compare?
Canadian drama is improving in quality compared to American programs, according to a new report released by the Friends of Canadian Broadcasting. Hour-long Canadian dramas rating in the top 20 TV shows in terms of quality, include CBC’s DaVinci’s Inquest, CBC’s Wind At My Back, CTV’s Cold Squad, CBC’s Nothing Too Good For A Cowboy, and Global’s Traders. "It’s quite an achievement for a Canadian show with a budget of a million Canadian dollars an episode to stack up there with ER," says Friends spokesperson Ian Morrison, adding, "The system is working rather well, so we should be careful not to throw it out or mess around with it too much."
