If by chance you hit the play button and see nothing, the transmission periodically times out. But this is usually for a short while.

Definitely worth checking out. Lively social media chat forum there too!

Live streams at right column.

Happy Thanksgiving, Canada!

Canadians have much to be thankful for... We enjoy freedom of religion, progressive multiculturalism and human rights, national health care, uncrowded natural landscapes and we're in the top 10 economic countries with a banking system rated #1 worldwide for stability.
