Sun News Network's Brian Lilley reported that while private sector workers are away from work about 8.9 days per year and public sector employees are gone 12.6 days annually, the average hooky tally for CBC workers is 16.5 days per year.

The CBC can be successfully privatized (CBC English, CBC French) to an array of qualified Canadian business groups such as Rogers, TELUS, Pattison and others, similar to the Liberal Government’s smart privatization of Petro Canada and Air Canada.
The Billions of dollars earned from the privatization of the CBC could pay down our debt and the $100,000,000 sucked from Tax Payers every 30 days could be re-directed to our critical Health Care needs, perhaps even adding Dental coverage for Canadians.
