Default Crowchild Trail Water Main - CBC only interviewed white people?

Crowchild Trail Water Main - CBC only interviewed white people?

Why does CBC always do this in Calgary? They purposely select white people - its not random at all. Its Random white people... So much for balanced reporting..

and to rub it in our faces - they use an attractive white girl as the main interview thumbnail.

A massive water main break along Crowchild Trail is already causing major traffic delays for commuters heading south on the busy road this morning.
The city says southbound lanes from Bow Trail to 33rd Avenue on Crowchild Trail are closed to the general public, with one lane restricted to local residents, transit and emergency vehicles only.
CBC reporter Brooks DeCillia is at the scene and says southbound vehicles are being allowed to exit off of Crowchild onto Bow Trail, and a trickle of vehicles are exiting at 17 Avenue southwest.
He said there is also a long line of traffic heading southbound past the 17 Avenue exit, and police are diverting those drivers onto the 33rd Avenue exit.
'This water main break is one of the largest the City of Calgary has ever experienced.'— City of Calgary
City crews worked through the night tearing up all three southbound lanes between 32nd and 33rd avenues southwest.
The major commuter route will remain closed as the pipe is repaired and tested, and then the excavated area is filled and repaved.
The new section of water main has been put in place, and the next step is to backfill and pressure test the pipe.
"Initially crews found that a 600-millimetre section of pipe had burst. A crack has since been discovered that runs from the break, putting the total length at six metres. The excavation was complicated by the discovery of an abandoned ATCO gas line that had to be removed by ATCO," said the city in a release.
"This water main break is one of the largest the City of Calgary has ever experienced. The 400-millimetre water main is cast iron and was installed in the 1930s."

The city estimates more than 50,000 commuters will be affected by the closure.
Calgary Transit says while transit is running, delays are expected for routes 18, 20, 112 and 181. Transit riders are being advised to allow extra time for travel, and southbound commuters are being asked to find alternative routes.
Sean Somers, with the city's roads department, says they are working to ease the congestion on alternate routes.
"We're adjusting some of the signal timings on the other major routes around the area to try [and] increase flow into the downtown core in the morning and out of the downtown core in the afternoon," he said.
"So the message for us here really today is this is unfortunate this has happened, but it has."
The city is working to open the southbound Crowchild Trail section before the morning commute on Tuesday.
City crews to work on another rupture in South Calgary

City crews are also dealing with another unrelated water main break at 19th Street and 28th Avenue S.W. that left roughly 40 homes with no water Sunday.
Water wagons have been dispatched to the homes in the Marda Loop area, and the city says it plans to make repairs Monday morning.
