Canadian Magazine Fights Nation's 'Nice' Image
REBECCA ROBERTS, host:
Good morning. I'm Rebecca Roberts.
A magazine in Canada is trying to shake up that country's image as the land of nice and polite. Editors at the Beaver are asking their readers to nominate the worst Canadians. The idea came from a British magazine whose readers chose Jack the Ripper. The leading contender in Canada: the late Harold Ballard, former owner of the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey team. We take our hockey very seriously says the magazine's editor.
It's MORNING EDITION.
