Canadian taxpayers cough up a $billion in subsidies for the CBC. Heritage Minister James Moore now says the Corporation could now face a cut of five per cent across the board to help Ottawa slay the deficit. Five per cent across the board would be a huge cut.
Moore added that “The idea that the CBC can’t find five per cent of efficiencies within the CBC to give back to the broader economic framework, I think is silly.”This projected cut to the CBC begs the question whether Canadian taxpayers would be better off if the CBC were privatized and forced on its own two financial feet.
The fact is many of the CBC’s most popular shows are American.
Should the CBC be privatized
The fact is that in the primary news programs, the CTV with Lloyd Robertson beat CBC with Pastor Mainsbridge by a country mile night after night.
Should the CBC be privatized?
Should Harper cut funds to the CBC?
What do you think?
