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.

Was Hubert Lacroix appointed to kill the CBC

It seems that there’s a move a foot to kill the CBC. And it’s coming from within.

Hubert Lacroix, the reigning President of our Nation’s broadcaster looks like a business guy/bureaucrat brought in to dismantle the CBC one block at a time.

He didn’t work his way up the broadcaster, but was appointed by Stephen Harper who clearly is no fan of public broadcasting.

Clearly the CBC needs to be re-defined and then Canadians need to decide if they want to fund it and use it.

Is it time for the CBC staff to buy the “Beeb” and run it as a co-op? Would CBC staff and their unions for example, take a 50% pay cut to take control over their own destinies instead of being bull dozed by one particular leader or party? Could they compete in the current market place?

Mostly though should some government appointed stooge ever be allowed to helm the CBC again? Surely you can’t expect positive results when you look at Mr. Lacroix’s resume, can you? After all the CBC was never meant to be profitable; but it also was never meant to be bad.

Looking at some of his gigs; Telemedia was sold off in parts. Zarlink was involved in a hostile takeover. Donahue Inc.’s shares were sold off. Michelin is still in business; but then you always need good wheels to get away in after you’re part of the end of a company. Hubert Lacroix looks like he was a man appointed to kill the CBC, not lead it.
