Canadians love Coronation Street.
In Canada there are Corrie Chat Rooms, Corrie Pings, Corrie Clubs. If an episode of the show is not going to be broadcast in its regular time slot for any reason CBC television is swamped with calls from irate fans!
Canadians are Corrie Crazy (I'm not one of them). Could it be, at least in part, due to a little known fact concerning Coronation Street's direct Canadian connection?
