Canadian fans have been insulted by the recent snub by the BBC and the organizers of the Doctor Who World Tour.

I must admit that as a long time Doctor Who fan this editor is a tad bit P.O.’ed with the BBC that they insulted every single Doctor Who fan in Canada, where the show first aired in 1965, by not bringing the Doctor Who World Tour to one, not (!) one, Canadian city. I guess we Canadians don’t count for anything.  Typical!
