Author's Note:

The Trudeau government can and should abolish the Board through an amendment to the Broadcasting Act, replacing it with a new governance structure whose members are appointed based on merit and independent from the government.

Author's Video Note:

Brick by brick, CBC’s Board of Directors, a holdover from the Harper era, continues on its destructive course, dismantling our national public broadcaster.

The corporation’s Calgary station building is the latest of CBC’s assets up for sale. Meanwhile, the Board is making plans to sell off the CBC’s Canadian Broadcasting Centre in Toronto and Maison Radio-Canada in Montreal

These ill-considered decisions are being made by people appointed by Stephen Harper to CBC’s Board of Directors, most of whom have been financial supporters of the Conservative Party.

With your help we can stop the sell off.
