Holiday specials, finales, and special guests.

There's a lot happening in Canadian television right now, so here's a sum up:

Chaz Bono made a special appearance on the "Degrassi" set to help show support for their transgender storyline currently going on right now. "It permeated every aspect of my life, even more than I was aware," Bono said to The Canadian Press. "It's not the kind of thing that you want to have to go through in your life, not understanding about yourself like I had to." "Degrassi" airs on Fridays on MuchMusic.

Meanwhile, the CBC announced its upcoming holiday schedule of programming. There will be a "Dragons' Den" special airing December 5th at 8pm, while the new animated special "The Hockey Skates" will be on December 13th at 8:30pm. Also, look for the CCMA special "I'll Be Home…" December 20th at 9pm, "Stars On Ice" December 3rd at 8pm featuring Kurt Browning, Scott Moir, Tessa Virtue, Joannie Rochette, Jeffrey Buttle, and Shawn Sawyer, and another ice skating special with Kurt Browning, Elvis Stojko, Jeffrey Buttle, and Joannie Rochette called "Holiday Festival On Ice" December 12th at 8pm.

Finally, don't miss the big finale of CTV's popular police drama "Flashpoint," which will air in two parts on December 6th and 13th. It's not only the conclusion of this year's season but the series as well. CTV invites viewers to celebrate the end of an era with the exclusive tribute special "Flashpoint: The Final Salute," premiering Thursday, December 13th at 7:30pm. The network will also present complementary, interactive fan promotions, including a gala finale screening, all leading up to the highly anticipated final episode on Dec. 13.

"It permeated every aspect of my life, even more than I was aware," Bono said of a prolonged identity struggle that saw him live as a lesbian for much of his adult life.

"It's not the kind of thing that you want to have to go through in your life, not understanding about yourself like I had to."
