Save the Canadian Grand Prix

When Bernie Ecclestone killed the 2009 Canadian Grand Prix, that just confirmed that F1 became too much business and too little sport. Boring tracks are added to the calendar, while the classic venues are discarded like paper cups. I am out of words, so here is a great initiative by Manipe F1, a petition that can be signed by everyone who is as disgusted as I am with this situation:

That is no world championship. That is a money race that has to stop. Otherwise all the races in the future will be in Asia... In countries that have no auto racing heritage at all. Tell me about logic venue selection. And I am not even going to get into two races in tiny Spain and none in North America.
