Comparing to last fall's schedule:

STRANGE EMPIRE replaces Cracked Monday 9:00pm
THE HONOURABLE WOMAN replaces Crossing Lines Tuesday 9:00pm
CANADA'S SMARTEST PERSON replaces Battle of the Blades Sunday 8:00pm
CBC SELECTS replaces Dragon's Den (encore) Sunday 9:00pm

According to the Crossing Lines fact sheet, season 2 won't be ready until 4th quarter, so it may show up in 2015. Since it's an international co-production, it will probably be fairly cheap to pick up and there's the Donald Sutherland Canadian connection.

CBC also mentioned the six-part Australian mini-series SECRETS AND LIES, which will be shown sometime this summer.

Interesting timing - I saw a promo on CBC this morning and thought I should check on CBC's winter schedule.

Crossing Lines is still on the CBC web site, but no mention of anything past season 1 and it's not on the winter schedule. Season 2 aired in some European countries and is on Amazon Prime UK, but nothing in North America. BTW Netflix has season 1 for anyone that missed it.
