Canadian Renewable Fuels Association: Canada's 'Corn Cob Bob' Goes Big Time In New York

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 8, 2005) -

On August 9, Renewable mascot will make North American TV debut on The Daily Show

Corn Cob Bob, the friendly mascot of the Canadian renewable fuel industry that was banned by Shell Canada on "Canada Day," will now have his story told to a North American TV audience via "The Daily Show with John Stewart" in New York City.

"From the corn fields of Ontario to the bright lights, big city in New York - we are very proud of our homegrown success story," said Canadian Renewable Fuels Association Executive Director Kory Teneycke. "For a while it looked like the good news about corn ethanol would never get out. Corn Cob Bob was thrown out on his ear, banned from Canada Day, but now he is back, bigger than ever."

11:00 PM locally on the Comedy Network in Ontario, Quebec, B.C.
