This was a 30 minute live action kid's show which was made in Montreal and aired on Saturday mornings in the late 80s. The premise was that a bunch of kids ran a newspaper and organized it according to the tastes of kids. It was fairly low budget but the kids were decent enough performers and the program was fast paced with jokes, puzzles, skits and occasional interviews. On one episode, one of the kids interviewed Brian Mulroney, just a short time before the GST was passed. (it'd have been interesting to know if that segment would have aired after Mulroney passed the GST and most of Canada was down on him!) The show I think was only shown in Eastern Canada and is mostly forgotten today but it was a good example of how a half-decent show could be produced on a low budget for a certain target audience, though it's unlikely a show of this nature would appeal to most of today's kids who prefer special effects and animation.
