TBC bicycle thief still at large

I wrote about this guy more than a year ago, and we even got some tips.

But he’s either very dumb, very desperate, or very ballsy, because according to reports emailed to me, he’s still at it.

They didn’t get him on tape this time. Maybe the camera wasn’t turned on? These pictures are from last year.

The thief was wearing a silver helmet, a navy blue jacket with a white patch on the left side, black jeans and running shoes. He was first spotted at the John St entrance, and was suspiciously looking around for a place to park his bike.

If you see this man lingering around bicycles, CBC Security has sanctioned the use of force in his apprehension. With extreme prejudice.

Just kidding! He’s not to be harmed whatsoever. Just lightly tasered.

Just joking! Call CBC Security if you see him, and we’ll leave the tasering to the professionals.

    Can we talk about bike theft? This shit is fucking serious. For the past week I’ve been parking my bike next to a cut cable lock, which I guess the owner of didn’t feel a need to hang onto.

    Programming “Wheel of Fortune” just as the mandate review commmences is very peculiar. It is either provocative, aggressive, naive or just stupid. It is certain rich fodder for the CBC haters in Govt. who will ask, reasonably, “Why are we spending tax dollars on what is already abundantly available?” Or then, it’s stupid.

    How does anything in the new slate of TV shows “re-define” the CBC, let alone broadcasting?
    Everything looked like the CBC did ten years ago or more. Just the same old same old.
    Where was there any indication of innovative thinking, of looking at and using broadcast media differently?
    Where was there any hint that we exist in the age of the internet? let alone that the CBC is on top of all it, and joining in in an exciting new way.

    So two gay guys replace Gill Deacon, and guess what they’re gonna talk about. Heaven forbid you should have the gays do something serious like Public Affairs or culture.
    As much as I do like the gay duo personally, they’re much happier with each other than i could ever be with both of them. Almost instant snorefest.
    Kirstine seemed uncomfortable reading the prepared script (but then it’s not her primary gig) and left the shocking news about Jeopardy to the end, followed by a quick exit.
    Bring Al Hamel back too! I’m sure he can leave Suzanne alone for a few minutes a day.

    It has got to be demoralizing to work at the CBC and see so many American shows in Master Control, with so many talented Canadians looking for work and attention.
    How are we defining ourselves by having George interview Jeff Goldbloom?
    In light of the CBC mandate, isn’t this just insulting hypocrisy?
    Didn’t Steve Earle just walk from the “Q” studios and right over to “The Hour” studios?
    Does it matter if it’s Korea or Canada or the BBC interviewing Jeff Golbloom?
    How does such a sell-out tell us anything about ourselves and our national identity?

    The CBC isn’t doing anything more in drama than giving actors employment.
    It’s not like the Corp is debuting a new play by Sky Gilbert or Linda Griffith or any of the new and daring playwrights at local theaters across the country. There’s practically a new play just in Toronto every week, not to overlook Vancouver and even Halifax.
    And nothing in television has yet tapped into the immense resources of the internet. Nothing has reflected the New Media in any way.

    Yesterday’s token exercise in PR simply said “we’re desperate, we don’t have an original thought, we’ll leave the bravery to others, and at 5 o’clock I’m outta here!”

    I’ve never thought of the CBC as part of a vast Wasteland, just a constant example of Wasted Opportunity.

    “Kirsteeeeeeen, you don’t have to put on your red dress …” (a smart pantsuit would have been more professional. But of course, you look good in anything.)

    “Wheel Of Fortune”? I guess it really is all over for the once great CBC. What a terrible shame.

    Someone told me the Nature of Things was still on the air. Can someone confirm this is true and tell me why?

    Moving the foundering Mosque to follow Mercer is such a craven act. Like it’s gonna make that stinker any funnier. It’s the Emperor’s New Show.
