Global, CBC and CTV will air "Canada for Haiti" at 8 p.m. AT.
Dozens of A-list Canadian names have been announced as supporters of the show, which was quickly organized by staff from competing networks.

The commercial-free program will be hosted by Cheryl Hickey, Ben Mulroney and George Stroumboulopoulos.

Film stars who will appear include Jason Reitman, Ryan Reynolds, William Shatner, Rachelle Lefevre, Joshua Jackson, Eugene Levy, Norman Jewison, Tom Jackson and Will Arnett.

TV personalities Brent Butt, Hugh Dillon, Mike Holmes, Rick Mercer, Alex Trebek, Sandra Oh and Pamela Anderson are on board.

Musicians Justin Bieber, Nelly Furtado, Sarah McLachlan, Barenaked Ladies, Simple Plan, David Foster, Chantal Kreviazuk, Raine Maida and Measha Brueggergosman have signed on.
K'naan and the Tragically Hip will perform.

Humanitarian Craig Kielburger and star athletes Wayne Gretzky and Steve Nash will participate, and Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Gov. Gen. Michaelle Jean will have special messages for Canadians.

Donations collected during the broadcast will be split evenly between a number of non-profit organizations including the Canadian Red Cross Society, Free the Children, Oxfam Canada, Oxfam Quebec, Plan Canada, Save the Children Canada, UNICEF Canada and World Vision Canada.

The U.S. benefit "Hope for Haiti Now" will air immediately after the Canadian benefit.

The two-hour special -- also airing on MTV, MuchMusic and National Geographic Channel -- will be hosted by George Clooney and include performances by the likes of Beyonce, Madonna, Wyclef Jean, Bruce Springsteen, Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake, Coldplay and Taylor Swift. Keith Urban, Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow will perform together, as will Bono, the Edge, Jay-Z and Rihanna.

* Canadians can donate by visiting, dialling 1-877-51-HAITI or texting AID to 45678.

If you folks up north are wondering why people down here are throwing a snit-fit.......peruse this. It pretty much represents all that is wrong with the
bureaucracy. Disheartening.
