OTTAWA—Some 25 years ago this summer, CBC launched its all-news cable channel, then called Newsworld, Susan Delacourt writes.
The network has been marking the anniversary with periodic glimpses of its coverage of large and small events in Canada and abroad.
Many of the current denizens of Ottawa never knew or can barely remember a life before all-news TV.
(Before there was Newsworld, CTV had Question Period, hosted by the late Bruce Phillips. He and P. Trudeau once abolished private enterprise during a Christmas interview. :)) Well, not really, it was just Pierre's musings but caused quite a stir.)
