The CBC continues to operate in a wasteful, bias manner serving the socialist left wing mandate only while continuing to lose viewers and advertising revenues. Scandals continue. An unsettling, ugly anti Semitic movement has grown in the CBC News operation, history experts will know that this troubling bias can have devastating results for our country. Act now- contact your MP, the PMO and the CBC to stop this frightening socialist anti Semitic driven bias now.
Disgruntled CBC workers continue to confidentially share their stories with us, reports of management snooping, waste, huge salaries for select senior management, content bias, low employee morale continue in 2019 and we will expose these activities in our blog while protecting our whistleblower contacts. We take joy in knowing that the CBC-HQ visits us daily to spy on us, read our stories and to find out who owns our for the Canadian people blog.
One of our most popular posts continues to be the epic Dr. Leenen case against the Fifth Estate (the largest libel legal case ever awarded against the media in Canadian history) yet where no one at CBC was fired and taxpayers paid the huge award and legal costs for this blatant CBC Libel action. Writers and filmmakers -this is a Perfect story for an award winning Documentary -ok - who would fund it and where would it air since the CBC owns the Documentary channel! Can you help? Please contact us.
cbcExposed continues to enjoy substantial visitors coming from Universities and Colleges across Canada who use us for research in debates, exams, etc.
We ask students to please join with us in this mission; you have the power to make a difference! And so can private broadcasters who we know are hurting from the dwindling Advertising revenue pool and the CBC taking money from that pool while also unfairly getting massive Tax subsidies money. It's time to stop being silent and start speaking up Bell-CTV, Shaw-Global, Rogers, etc.
Our cbcExposed Twitter followers and visitors to cbcExposed continue to motivate us to expose CBC’s abuse and waste of tax money as well as exposing their ongoing left wing bully-like anti-sematic news bias. Polls meanwhile show that Canadians favour selling the wasteful government owned media giant and to put our tax money to better use for all Canadians. The Liberals privatized Petro Canada and Air Canada; it’s time for the Trudeau Liberals to privatize the CBC- certainly not give them more of our tax money-enough is enough!
The CBC network’s ratings continue to plummet while their costs and our taxpayer bailout subsidies continue to go up! In 2019 what case can be made for the Government to be in the broadcasting business, competing unfairly with the private sector? The CBC receives advertising and cable/satellite fees-fees greater than CTV and Global but this is not enough for the greedy CBC who also receive more than a billion dollars of your tax money every year. That’s about $100,000,000 (yes, $100 MILLION) of our taxes taken from your pay cheques every 30 days and with no CBC accountability to taxpayers.
Wake up! What does it take for real change at the CBC? YOU! Our blog contains a link to the Politicians contact info for you to make your voice heard. Act now and contact your MP, the Cabinet and Prime Minister ... tell them to stop wasting your money on a biased, failing media service, and ... sell the CBC.

Judge suspends Quebecor defamation case against CBC exec
December 1, 2010
MONTREAL – Quebec’s highest court has suspended Quebecor CEO Pierre Karl Peladeau's defamation case against a CBC French executive while Quebecor tries to have the presiding judge removed for alleged bias.
The appeals court expressed concerns Friday about comments made by Justice Claude Larouche and agreed to hear Quebecor’s motion to have Larouche dropped from the case.
The appeal will be heard on February 22. If the Court of Appeal rules in Quebecor’s favour, the defamation case will be thrown out and heard before another judge.
Peladeau, owner of QMI Agency, is suing CBC French vice-president Sylvain Lafrance for $700,000 for calling Peladeau a “punk” in a 2007 newspaper interview.
Lafrance made the comment after Quebecor’s cable subsidiary stopped paying into the Canadian Television Fund. Quebecor had objected to the fact that more than a third of the CTF’s funding went to the CBC, which already receives more than $1 billion a year from taxpayers.
Quebecor became concerned by several comments made by Justice Larouche in open court, including his admission that he had been reluctant to take on the case because of the workload involved.
Last month Larouche displayed two Quebec magazines in court that featured Peladeau on the cover. He suggested Peladeau had planted the feature stories to beef up his public image during the trial, despite the fact that both magazines are owned by rivals.
Peladeau decided to push for Larouche’s removal when the judge refused to suspend the case after the sister of Quebecor’s chief counsel died suddenly. Larouche said the woman’s death was not a sufficient reason to put off the case and that other Quebecor lawyers could take it over.
The appeals court judge said Friday that Larouche’s decision was “unreasonable.”
“One could raise questions about the motives given by the judge to refuse the postponement,” wrote Justice Michel Robert, who is chief justice of Quebec and also Larouche’s boss.
Justice Robert also took issue with Larouche’s public comments about the internal workings of the Superior Court.
“Is it appropriate for a judge to discuss the manner in which cases are assigned?”
CBC lawyers said that while Justice Larouche might have misspoken at times, his comments did not constitute bias.
