My family and I watched this special of CHCH on television, I cannot how much the staff and people who work there has done so much after all these years. We watch “CHCH” from the moment we wake up to he moment we go to bed. Interesting news facts and up to date weather for school closing due to weather and other various things. Keep smiling CHCH and keep up the good work. Many more years to come!
