Tracy Moore Named New CityLine Host
Friday October 17, 2008
It’s one of the most popular shows in Canada and an institution at Citytv.
CityLine has been on the air for 24 years and was the original TV show that put the spotlight on design, food, gardening, health, fashion, beauty and other items of interest to domestic goddesses everywhere.
Now there are entire networks devoted to the subject. But a quarter of a century ago, this show was unique. And it remains that way to this day.
Part of that success has always been attributed to the hosts who guided viewers through the ins-and-outs of homemaking and style. In the early years, that was the legendary Dini Petty. And for 19 of those seasons, it was the remarkable Marilyn Denis.
But after she left the show in May, there was a big question mark: who could possibly replace the irreplaceable?
After trying out a series of co-hosts over the summer and early fall, we can finally answer that question – and it’s someone you know very well.

I was sent this clip and could not believe what I was seeing. We have seen some attack ads in the past from the Conservatives, however not to this extreme. I cannot believe that this is really and ad endorsed by the Republicans? You hope that people do not vote based on propaganda or a political party playing to their religious fears. However, it looks like they continue to. I guess it just works? I heard a radio show on CBC and the guest believed that there should be “an intelligence test” or some type of qualifications for voting (I.e. a slight bit of education…). I doubt that would ever happen, however with only 50-60% of voters even bothering to show up, really what is the point. We fought wars to protect this freedom. One day we will loose our right to be an informed voter and we will say “what the hell happened”.
But I digress, this is America and the politics of fear work the best. Based the information I was given, the intent is to slightly imply that Obama is the somehow the anti-Christ. Basing your vote on how you think the Bible is to be interpreted? That says it all! But I guess if you base your thought process on Biblical interpretations who am I to judge? Biblically speaking I guess it was fine for African-Americans to be treated as “less than human” for hundreds of years. Maybe it is fine, Biblically speaking, to eradicate the “savages”? Biblically speaking, as I guess Palin may believe, Russia is “Gog and Magog”, so they are the “bad guys”? Oh, I am forgetting those immigrants who are a threat to out way of living? So much for the ideology of removal of Church and State.
If people are actually believing this propaganda than all I can say is “America is a strange place”. No matter who you vote for, make sure it is grounded in facts. Think about what is best for the country. Remember those who used Christianity or their “faith” as a crutch to do the most hideous of crimes against humanity. Use the mind that God gave you and educate yourself before you make ANY choice. The same applies to Canadians. As the old saying goes, “don’t believe the hype”. God forbid Canada ever gets like this! If it ever does, please get help, get medicated and get educated!
