Re: The Bridge documentary is an awesome piece of film

Turns out that after a single complaint by some luser in Newfoundland (who apparently missed the day in school where they taught that the meaning of words can change according to the context in which they are used), The Canadian Broadcast Standards Council decided that it was "unsuitable for airplay" on private radio stations. This happened in 2011, over a quarter century after the song hit #1 in the Canadian charts. Naturally, most stations ignored the "ban". The CBSC later changed their tune to make it advisory, allowing stations to make up their own minds.
