Comments and queries for the week of September 23

Where is Liza Fromer?

I missed Liza Fromer on The Morning Show, and wondered where she was. Will she be back? —Sheila

No, Liza won’t be back on The Morning Show. Her contract was not renewed. Global News made the announcement in June.


Where is Kim’s Convenience?

What day and time is the pilot or premiere? —Alex

Kim’s Convenience debuts Monday, Oct. 4, at 9 p.m. on CBC. Look for our behind-the-scenes feature closer to air date.


No love for The Bachelorette Canada
