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.

Privatize CBC says Another Conservative Party Leader Hopeful
If the Conservative Establishment in Ottawa spent as much time listening to you about policy as they do squeezing you for money, we’d have already privatized the CBC
If you’re a member of the Conservative Party of Canada you know exactly what I mean. When it comes to taking your money, the party is efficient and persistent. When it comes to taking your advice on policy however, Establishment Conservatives are determined to do their own thing.
Rank-and-file members of our party are against taxpayers owning and funding a state broadcaster – especially one so openly hostile to our values. They want to cut the apron strings (more than $1-billion a year) and let the CBC – allegedly a world-class organization – stand on its own two feet.
Establishment Conservatives in Ottawa think they know better though.They don’t care what you think as long as you keep sending them money.
I understand and share your frustration. That’s why I tabled Bill C-308 in the House of Commons last fall to privatize the CBC despite being pressured by Establishment Conservatives not to “rock the boat.” I did it because I’m not one of them. I’m not an Establishment Conservative.
I work for you, not them.
Unfortunately, the Establishment is winning the battle for votes among Conservative MPs in Ottawa. Two weeks ago, two of these MPs delivered speeches in the House of Commons opposing my bill and praising the CBC. One of these two had even seconded the bill when it was introduced last fall.
Your read the right – a Conservative MP delivered a speech opposing a bill he had seconded while Liberal and NDP MPs watched and laughed at the spectacle. That’s how bad things are in Ottawa.
I say – enough!

This is your party. It’s time to take it back!
