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.

Tory MP has a website petition to cut funding to the CBC ...

The Conservatives are hauling the CBC onto the carpet this fall to explain why it is fighting the access to information law in the courts, part of increased scrutiny of the public broadcaster’s spending and practices by the new majority government.


The move comes at the same time as the Conservative party surveys its members on whether CBC funding is good value for the taxpayer.

One Tory MP has a website petition to cut funding to the broadcaster, and the party’s spokesperson recently referred to “extravagant spending” by the CBC in an Ottawa newspaper.

  1. watching commercial free CBC kids programs that are really well put together is worth lots to me. if you support "the arts" and other things like that then why not the CBC?

    it's pretty sad that of all the major broadcasters in our country the government / canadian people funded CBC is the only one who ever even remotely questions the government rhetoric and actions... and they could still improve quite a bit in that area.

    of course the CBC is not perfect... far from it... but we should fight to make it better not sell it.

    your money down the drain image might be effective in a grade 3 classroom i suppose but you could make the same image for health care and almost every other government program. are you an anarchist or something? should we just get rid of all government maybe?

    you sound like most of the people out there who resent investment in public programs because you don't get to make money off it and nobody else is making private riches off it.

    boo urns to this boring old rhetoric that is backwards and the opposite of what a strong country with proud people should expect.
