...no, it's not a plea, it's an upcoming documentary, check it out:[url=http://www.canada.com/globaltv/ontario/story.html?id=c8158487-3d64-4308-98b8-ba0eae4282d6&k=95735]http://www.canada.com/globaltv/ontario/ ... d6&k=95735[/url]
The director is Albert Nerenberg from Montreal, he of the critically acclaimed films "Stupidity: The Documentary" and "Escape to Canada." One of his schticks is that he travels the country setting up a faux "Toronto Appreciation Day" in towns like Vancouver, Winnipeg, Calgary, etc. Then, as a "Mr. Toronto" takes the microphone and starts singing the praises of the centre of the universe, the camera crew sits back and films the almost instinctive anti-toronto invective that spews from passers-by.
Incidentally, Nerenberg makes a big deal about how even First Nations peoples in the pre-contact era hated toronto - a fact unearthed over a year ago in the Forbidden Website's historical defense of the Forbidden Chant. It's certainly nice to yet again receive validation from our peers and the community at large. Also, the film waxes philosophic on what it means to "hate" Toronto, which is a question that has frequently made the rounds on ticats.ca (most recently last saturday).
Anyhow, filming for the doc is near its end, but they still haven't come to Hamilton yet, and they seem only dimly aware of the whole Ticats-argos thing!! Even worse, the director is under the impression that Montreal is the most anti-Toronto city in Canada. But, as JaketheSnake put it, all they'd have to do is set up the toronto rally near Ivor Wynne on game day, and the documentary could be longer than Lord of the Rings.
So, if anyone out there has the ways and means to contact Nerenberg, please do so! It would be a shame to have such a fine production by-pass Hamilton entirely. I sent him an email through his trailervision website (firstname.lastname@example.org), but if he's your uncle or something, plead with him to come to Hamilton!!
