Hello? CTV News?

That was strange.
I was watching CTV (Toronto) 11:30 news. The last 3 (or so) minutes of news did not air.
They went to ads "more news after the break", then came back to a black screen.
A minute later the CTV Toronto symbol popped up, but the screen stayed black.
They went to more ads, then came back to a black screen again, then more ads and an ad for CTV news, then all of a sudden everything was fine just in time for Trevor Noah's show.

What happened?

Gremlins. And then more gremlins.

It sounds like someone pulled the plug to prevent the real news from ever airing.

  Speaking of strange happenings on the late CFTO News, they ran a "breaking news" item a few nights ago that Donald Trump announced he would have a cabinet meeting the next day.  US cabinet meetings are mostly meaningless, so how was this news -- especially to us in the Great White North?  Very strange, indeed.
