After months of encouraging all political parties to support more funding for CBC/Radio-Canada, we were encouraged to see the NDP speaking in support publicly at the Toronto Broadcast Centre today.
Mulcair also indicated that the NDP would ensure the CBC building does not have to be sold.
He committed to putting in place, an independent and objective nomination process to get the best Canadians for the jobs of CBC president and board of directors, “Canadians deserve to have champions for their public broadcaster, people who will stand up and fight for the CBC,” he said.
CMG continues to rally political and public support for CBC, a priority for us in this election year.
We are excited to help with a concert planned for Ottawa next week on March 9. Chris Hadfiled will join major Canadian artists and personalities at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa. This event “For The Love of CBC – Pour l’amour de Radio-Canada” is now sold out (900 seats), but you can watch it live online.
Please encourage your family and friends to help make CBC/Radio-Canada an issue in this election.
CMG National President
