Meeting Erica at CBC’s open doors event

Erin Karpluk

What an interesting idea. Over in Canada, CBC has an annual ‘open doors’ event in which you can tour the network’s facilities and meet the stars. Look, here’s Erin Karpluk of Being Erica being told she’s the next Carrie Bradshaw.

I wonder if the Beeb could do something similar. What do you think?
