Interesting...does anyone in Canada own any of the required recepetion
and decoding equipment to pick up these digital signals?

If this is true, it's a bit hasty, don't you think?   When I was in Canada
I didn't recall seeing any of these new digital receivers advertised or in
stores.  All TV sets being sold up there were the same as down here.

This is dumber than the AM to FM switch CBC-Radio and Soc. Radio Canada
have been doing.
