WE DID IT!!!!!!!

We did it people! we helped save The Instigator!!!! We received the following from the folks at CBC:

Just a quick note to let you know The Instigator is back online at cbc.ca. If you could post something on your blog, which has become the hub of bring-back-the-Instigator activity, that would be great.

It has a slightly revamped address: http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/instigator/

We'll be adding the full roster of archives by the weekend, as well as the full-size toon with the 'email to a friend' function.

Charlie and I have been in touch almost daily since the CBC lockout ended (I was locked out too) and let's just say we're both really relieved that it's back.

So, barring another lockout or a meteor strike, The Instigator will be with us for at least this season.

Let me just thank you and the legions of Charlie's other fans who filled up our mailbox for your support for and dedication to the best toon on the web. I still would have found a way to bring it back even without your campaign, but you did make a difference.

Cheers,

Andrew L.

We can't thank everyone enough. Thanks to you and all the folks that sent emails to CBC and posted references to this blog on your websites! We put together a true grassroots effort here and we accomplished what we set out to do. Now we'll get The Instigator twice a week as a reward!

Game On!

That's fantastic news! A big thanks to everyone at Save the Instigator for the effort, as well as all the readers out there who sent email.

We're honestly not sure we could have continued on the 'hockey beat' without our Instigator, so we're very grateful...

Cheers!
