Its 2017: 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. And now the new Trudeau Government has promised at least an additional $150 million dollars a year to this biased, wasteful government broadcaster. As is, Taxpayers continue to be hosed to the tune of about $100,000,000 (yes, 100 MILLION) of our taxes every 30 days with no CBC accountability to taxpayers as they continue with their biased news service serving only the extreme socialists and anti-Semitics. Wake up Canada!

cbcExposed continues to hear from confidential sources inside the CBC about the "scandal du jour" and we will continue to expose their reports of waste, abuse and bias while we protect our sources. We take joy in knowing CBC-HQ visits us daily to research our stories such as the CBC Sunshine List, ongoing scandals including the epic Dr. Leenen case against The Fifth Estate (the largest libel case ever awarded against the media in Canadian history) where no one at CBC was fired and taxpayers paid the award and legal costs for this CBC Libel action. Writers and filmmakers take note-this is a Perfect story for a Documentary!

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 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 Tax subsidies money. It's time to stop being silent and start speaking up.

Our cbcExposed Twitter followers and frequent 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 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, not give them more tax money.

What does it take for real change at the CBC? You! Our blog now 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, and ... sell the CBC.

Serial fraudster seen on Fifth Estate to appear in St. Lucia court

Allan May was arrested Saturday by police in St. Lucia.  A serial fraudster featured in a CBC documentary critical of Winnipeg-based fashion mogul Peter Nygard has been arrested by police in St. Lucia.

Allan May was arrested Saturday, nearly three months after a warrant was issued for his arrest by the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court. He was expected to make a court appearance Tuesday.  Police say May and his wife, Michelle, were found in contempt of court last fall after failing to repay US$189,000 to five investors following a civil fraud conviction in April 2009. A three-month-old arrest warrant remains in effect for Michelle May, who police believe is somewhere in St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

According to police in St. Lucia, the couple has “a history of committing frauds in other Caribbean islands, leaving each jurisdiction for the next island when identified by law enforcement officials.”  Months after the judgment against them, the couple spoke negatively of Nygard, their former employer, in an interview that appeared on a CBC Fifth Estate documentary about the fashion designer that originally aired in April 2010.

The documentary, entitled Larger Than Life, has spurred a number of lawsuits from Nygard including a direct criminal prosecution against the CBC and producers of the program for defamatory libel.  “The arrest is further evidence of the CBC building their tabloid story on fabricated information provided by Allan and Michelle May,” an England-based spokesman for Nygard International said Monday night. “Nygard’s lawyers had provided the CBC pages of facts on the past fraudulent conduct of the Mays. In spite of this, CBC’s Fifth Estate chose to base 50% of their tabloid-style story on false testimony from the Mays.”

The next court hearing for that case is set for June 6.

A spokesman for the CBC declined comment.
