Canadian version of Coronation Street coming soon?

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog January 2013, reposted to this blog with permission.)

There's a story in today's Sun, which I can't read fully as I don't subscribe to it.  The headline says that Coronation Street writers are "secretly working on scripts for a Canadian version of the show".

From The Sun: "It is expected to be launched within months — and could see the national dish of pancakes and maple syrup replace Betty’s famous hotpot as the show’s signature dish.

Corrie is screened in 60 countries worldwide but this will be only the second foreign reworking made in 50 years."

What do you think, Canadian Corrie fans?  

Post-blog edit: A Coronation Street source has told Mirror Online: "Coronation Street is already shown in Canada, so we are not remaking Corrie. However, ITV studios are helping to develop a new show, a domestic Canadian soap."

They already tried that once with a show called Riverdale. Huge flop. Let's just stick with Corrie.

National dish of pancakes and maple syrup? Right. And please, if this really does happen put it anywhere but in Toronto! The rest of Canada doesn't relate to Toronto!
