Very funny video! The changes in Bill C-60 are very worrisome for those of us who believe the CBC is the backbone that keeps this country together.
Let's hope the Canadian public gets behind this initiative!
According to a Nanos Research poll that FRIENDS released on July 22, 81% of Canadians think the CBC should remain independent from government. Only 12% support the government taking control of the wages and working conditions of CBC's employees.
So it's clear that Stephen Harper – in pushing through Bill C-60 into law on June 29 – was not listening to Canadians.
We thought it might be fun to imagine who Harper was listening to when he gave himself all the tools he needs to turn CBC from a public broadcaster into a state broadcaster.
By forwarding the video, you will help FRIENDS build our FreeTheCBC campaign.
All the best!
FRIENDS of Canadian Broadcasting
