Re: Website opens then shuts down

Don't know. Don't have Opera mini. However, cbc/ca is now back the way it should be. Took quite a while for CBC to get it right. Sometimes it pays to wait.

Re: Website opens then shuts down

CBC.ca works now but has some rather insignificant articles above the world news every day. You have to scroll down to get the world news. CBC.ca/news works as well, but only with local news.
