The Slice

Because I didn’t grow up here

I don't know the answer. So I'm asking.

Has there ever been a time in Spokane when picking up a television signal from Canada was pretty standard?

As I kid, I lived reasonably close to the Canadian border (closer than Spokane is) in two different states. And watching the CBC was pretty routine. But I think that's because it was a part of the cable lineups.

Anyway, it just seems wrong to me to live this close to our neighbor to the north and not be able to pick up “Hockey Night in Canada.”
