OK, so I guess there's one more blog entry before my big HireMICHAELforHamiltonIsland.com "Thank-you" entry.
When I was in Penticton yesterday, I got an e-mail from CBC. They wanted to film me while I checked to see if I made the Top 50 for the Island Caretaker position. Unfortunately, I was going to be on the road when the fifty finalists were announced. It's just as well, because I did not make it as a finalist. While I question about a fifth of their selection ("That was better than mine? Really?"), I can't help but think that I should have used my extra 16 seconds to talk about the Great Barrier Reef and maybe score higher in their selection criteria. Oh, well!
As a consolation prize, I was on CBC's The National last night as "This guy from Whitehorse actually took a dip in sub-zero water". While that may be scientifically incorrect, it's also pretty neat to have been on The National (and CBC Newsworld, again).
