I Wonder Why Canadian Media Do Not Have This on Their Sites

I guess it doesn't count if rockets are fired, but no one is hit. Thank goodness media outside North America are willing to report it. From the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (link via Little Green Footballs):

Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip have fired four rockets at an Israeli town, resulting in several people being treated for shock.

The attacks are undermining the de facto ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinians.

One of the homemade Palestinian rockets smashed into a building [empty, according to other reports] in the centre of the Israeli town of Sderot.

Three other rockets landed in an open field outside the town.

Hours later Palestinian militants fired an anti-tank rocket at a school bus carrying children from a Jewish settlement in Gaza.

Witnesses say the rocket narrowly missed its target.

During an alleged ceasefire, terrorists fire a rocket at a school bus full of children and miss.

But check the CBC for the keywords in this story. It's not there.
Check CTV. It isn't there either.
Check, a source for major Canadian newpapers. Not there either.

However it does appear on Little Green Footballs. Check out the comments, especially this one.
