Dozens of Canadian performers get together for a benefit concert tonight at CBC in Toronto


Haunted and mobilized by the tragedy in southern Asia, an unprecedented coalition of Canadian broadcasters, relief agencies, celebrities, and politicians is mounting a historic benefit concert.
A crew of more than 100 is frantically transforming two rooftop CBC studios this morning, preparing for tonight's three-hour live concert, one that involves 26 acts, more than 50 stars, 16 cameras, satellite trucks, and dozens of the country's leading technical wizards.
Canada for Asia (on CBC at 7 p.m.) will be broadcast across the country in support of the relief efforts under way in Asian coastal regions, where last month's monstrous earthquake and tsunami killed at least 150,000 people and shattered the lives of millions more."
