Hockey Night in Canada is staying on CBC

As a Canadian I feel it is my duty to report on any big Hockey news. So here we go.

CBC the public broadcaster and the NHL announced a six-year agreement Monday for national English-language broadcast and multimedia rights to NHL games in Canada.The new agreement, subject to approval by the NHL’s board of governors, begins when the current deal expires at the end of the 2007-2008 season.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman says

The NHL is thrilled to continue our longstanding partnership with this great Canadian institution and build on a tradition that has become a staple for millions of Canadians from the time the first puck is dropped in October through the presentation of the Stanley Cup eight months later.” Hockey Night in Canada is currently in its 54th season
If it wasn't for Hockey night in Canada I wouldn't even watch CBC.
