The CBC continues to operate in a wasteful, bias manner serving the socialist left wing mandate only while continuing to lose viewers and advertising revenues. Scandals continue. An unsettling, ugly anti Semitic movement has grown in the CBC News operation, history experts will know that this troubling bias can have devastating results for our country. Act now- contact your MP, the PMO and the CBC to stop this frightening socialist anti Semitic driven bias now.
Disgruntled CBC workers continue to confidentially share their stories with us, reports of management snooping, waste, huge salaries for select senior management, content bias, low employee morale continue in 2021 and we will expose these activities in our blog while protecting our whistleblower contacts. We take joy in knowing that the CBC-HQ visits us daily to spy on us, read our stories and to find out who owns our for the Canadian people blog.
One of our most popular posts continues to be the epic Dr. Leenen case against the Fifth Estate (the largest libel legal case ever awarded against the media in Canadian history) yet where no one at CBC was fired and taxpayers paid the huge award and legal costs for this blatant CBC Libel action. Writers and filmmakers -this is a Perfect story for an award winning Documentary -ok - who would fund it and where would it air since the CBC owns the Documentary channel! Can you help? Please contact us.
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 with 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 massive Tax subsidies money. It's time to stop being silent and start speaking up Bell-CTV, Shaw-Global, Rogers, etc.
Our cbcExposed Twitter followers and 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 anti-sematic 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- certainly not give them more of our tax money-enough is enough!
The CBC network’s ratings continue to plummet while their costs and our taxpayer bailout subsidies continue to go up! In 2021 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 every year. That’s about $100,000,000 (yes, $100 MILLION) of our taxes taken from your pay cheques every 30 days and with no CBC accountability to taxpayers.
Wake up! What does it take for real change at the CBC? YOU! Our blog 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 on a biased, failing media service, and ... sell the CBC.
Shame on CBC News
RCMP suspected CBC host was a communist
Before entering politics in 1960, Levesque was a prominent host with the CBC's French-language television service, which came under close Mountie scrutiny.
The material released in 2007 revealed the RCMP's security branch closely tracked Levesque from his early career as a globe-trotting broadcaster, through his evolution into stalwart separatist and eventual emergence as Quebec premier in the 1970s.
The records made it clear the Mounties suspected the well-known commentator of being a left-wing subversive during his days with the CBC, but the newly released assertion he may be a Communist punctuates those concerns.
CBC 2017 2018 performance dismal
- CBC News Network’s performance softened in the latter half of the fiscal year, resulting in audience share dipping below target despite strong audience levels in the summer from coverage of the British Columbia wildfires and the Canada 150 events.
- Audience levels for the TV local 6 PM news ended the regular season below target and prior year due to softening across markets, most notably in Toronto and Vancouver
- Our local digital performance was below target and prior year due to industry-wide impacts of reduced referral traffic from third party social media sites.
- Despite year-over-year growth in many aspects of our digital offer, the number of monthly average unique visitors was below target due to industry-wide impacts of reduced referral traffic from third party social media sites
- Results ended the year below target due to the continued softening of the advertising market and declines in subscriber revenues due to the ongoing cord-shaving trend
CBC segment casts critics as dim-witted, delusional people
The Toronto-based Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) is among those who opposed the curriculum pushed by former Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne.
A recent segment on the CBC comedy show “This Hour Has 22 Minutes” took aim at the CLC by name, displaying the group’s logo onscreen and having two cast members portray CLC representatives discussing the issue on a news program.
Instead of engaging with any of the real-life organization’s detailed objections to the curriculum, however, the segment casts critics as dim-witted, delusional people with a completely different set of complaints and goals.

CBC wants level playing field
Submissions from all parties, including the country’s largest internet, TV and wireless service providers, agreed Canadians will increasingly use the internet to watch video and listen to music. No one disputes the internet is here to stay.
But fragmentation in new media has strained traditional business models of advertising and subscriptions, CBC submitted. At a minimum, it said the new rules should require streaming services, wireless carriers and internet providers to contribute to Canadian content like traditional cable and satellite players.
“This is essential to ensure a level playing field among domestic players and between domestic and foreign players,” CBC wrote.
CBC Fails to Substantiate Claim
They asked CBC News if it could substantiate the claim that an Israeli sniper shot and paralyzed Raji Sebteen’s sister and if the CBC could provide context about the alleged incident?
On October 19, HRC received the following reply from our public broadcaster that altogether failed to provide any evidence to back up the claim.
Is the CBC considered to be left leaning?
Very interesting poll we found. Is the CBC considered to be left leaning? You tell us!
The actual poll can be found here.
Is the CBC relevant today?
The CBC has consistently lost market share to their private rivals that do not benefit from a taxpayer subsidy. This fact alone dictates that people have voted with their television remotes already. The CBC likes to spin the government funding they receive (a fairly substantial $1.16 billion) by saying that it creates 3x that much for the Canadian economy. My response is that a private company could take those assets and do even better for the Canadian economy as a whole (as evidenced by their already more efficient business models).
CBC Comedy is crime against humour
To be clear, I’m not talking about the general phenomenon of comedy appearing on CBC. I’m talking instead about cbc.ca/comedy, a section of the CBC website devoted in part to publishing satirical news headlines.
Although it’s existed for three years, chances are you’ve never heard of it. Because while CBC doesn’t publicly release its website analytics, all signs point to the site having utterly dismal traffic.
CBC’s revisionist history
“To develop a story that I’ve been disciplined and then apologized because I’ve been a bad boy is incorrect,” says MacIntyre, who tells CANADALAND he’s “annoyed” by the CBC’s revisionist history. The truth, he says, is that as soon as he saw his comments to The Globe in print, he realized that he had misspoken and immediately sent Mansbridge an email apology as a courtesy to a colleague.
MacIntyre further clarified that he stands by the gist of his statements about Mansbridge. His error, he says, was to carelessly juxtapoze Mansbridge and Gzowski with Ghomeshi, whose alleged crimes are extreme. “There was no intention to tie (Mansbridge) to a criminal,” says MacIntyre.
However, the main thrust of his statements: that CBC fuels a culture of celebrity, that this leaves temporary and contract workers vulnerable, and that Mansbridge is known to have acted abusively to his subordinates, MacIntyre does not apologize for.
In an organization still reeling from the Ghomeshi affair, this new incident has CBC workers questioning how serious management really is about creating a culture where abusive behaviour can be reported by anyone.
Linden MacIntyre also noted the dissonance between a CBC that claims it wants to create a safe place for its employees and one that continues to protect its stars and punish their critics.
CBC journalists not grounded in reality
Meanwhile, just yesterday, it was announced that Tel Aviv will host Eurovision 2019 and CBC even reported this fact, proving once and again that the biased pronouncements of our public broadcaster’s journalists not only lack objectivity and are not grounded in reality, but they are factually incorrect.
Poll suggests Canadians have no idea of CBC cost
Judging from a new poll, the public broadcaster might better have used the ad space to show Canadians how its money was being spent.
The Abacus Data poll commissioned by QMI Agency and published in the Toronto Sun, suggests taxpayers underestimate how much the CBC gets from the federal government while at the same time most think it's getting too much.
According to the poll, more than 80 per cent of the 1,003 people sampled in the online poll conducted in English Aug. 12-15 did not know the CBC will get $1.1 billion from Ottawa this year. About 25 per cent believe it gets only one-tenth of its actual grant and 21 per cent thought it was only $10 million.
Can CBC Justify Taxpayer Money?
Oh, and of course, I forgot to add they hired the outside legal firm despite having 22 lawyers on staff. They do this all the time.
Seriously, can you think of any good reason why Canada should have a government-owned broadcaster but not a government-owned newspaper or grocery store? Whatever justification that once existed for CBC, it no longer holds in a 500-channel universe.
The CBC is not a private company
And that's exactly what has happened.
So Access to Information legislation is not only no guarantee for increased openness and transparency by government, but can be misused as a formula for concealing or obscuring information.
Nowhere is this more prevalent than within the CBC.
By keeping salaries secret, gratuities secret, entertainment costs secret, travel costs secret, absentee costs secret, the CBC is violating its mandate and should be an embarrassment for every CBC employee.
The CBC is not a private company. We all have a right to know how it spends the money taxpayers provide.
Claim that CBC encouraged testers to lie
The company claims Canada’s national broadcasting network encouraged man-on-the-street testers to lie about Subway chicken products in order to drive home an “erroneous” report that the meat was roughly 50 per cent soy.
In a hard-hitting lawsuit filed in an Ontario provincial court, Subway accuses the CBC, two producers and a reporter of asking the four testers questions about the chicken products that were “often leading and suggestive of the negative and false response elicited.”
CBC’S Gaza coverage sparks complaints to Ombudsman
The volume is in part due to the fact that the CBC has so many platforms, including radio, television, its website and social media. But in too many cases, there is “a pattern of problematic reporting,” said Mike Fegelman, executive director of HRC.
CBC reporters qualifications and actions are issues for Canadians to consider
As is generally the case, many media reports rely heavily on political groups that press their agendas under the facade of expertise in human rights.
However, as is very often the case, the officials of these organizations have neither the information nor the professional credentials to make such judgments, and by giving them legitimacy, journalists are simply perpetuating the myths.
In many cases, the Canadian media is no exception to this pattern. In listening to CBC Radio news programs, we hear the same distortions, biases, and clichés found elsewhere.
The assessment of the professional qualifications and actions of CBC reporters, and actions to be taken in response, are issues for Canadians to consider. But the lives of Israelis are deeply affected by these distorted and harmful portrayals in the international media.
CBC Losing Viewers and Ads
CBC projections provided to advertisers off sharply
But it is down from the 525,000 average viewership of the 2016-17 TV season, which concluded at the end of last August. And it is off sharply from the CBC’s own projections provided to advertisers, which forecast viewership at a more robust 532,000.
CBC News issues vague correction
In fact, 405 rockets have been fired at Israel from Gaza in the last 12 months (according to the Elder of Zion website), and 130 have been fired over the past month – most of them this week.
CBC is making Palestinians look like victims, not terrorists
Israeli authorities called Abbas' claims that a 13 year old Palestinian boy had been executed a lie -- in fact he is receiving treatment in an Israeli hospital, as seen in the video report, above (see link below).
During all this, taxpayer-funded CBC continues to minimize the recent terror attacks, through their biased choice of words and images that depict Palestinians as victims rather than perpetrators.
CBC's social experiment shut down by OPP
The reaction by some residents was to call the police when they saw a CBC actor selling the T-shirts on Victoria Street in downtown Alliston.
Nottawasaga OPP media relations officer Const. Harry Lawrenson confirmed the detachment put an end to the film shoot on Jan. 11 after receiving complaints from a couple of residents.
Perks of the CBC pension plan
Less than 40% of Canadian employees have a pension plan through work. We are proud to offer our CBC/Radio-Canada employees a defined benefit plan – one that pays you a regular monthly pension. It’s something you can count on! Not sure you will stay with CBC/Radio-Canada until retirement? You can choose to take the pension you’ve earned with you.
So what’s the plan worth? CBC/Radio-Canada puts in money for you each year – on top of the pay cheque you already receive. The closer you get to retirement, the more money CBC/Radio-Canada will put in. For a 30-year-old, it’s about 5% of your pay. For a 40-year-old, the number jumps to around 10% – and it keeps getting better with age!
As a permanent employee, you join the pension plan the month after you start with CBC/Radio-Canada – meaning you can take advantage of this extra money right away.
How the CBC Let Us Down
I was working from home that Friday in October almost two years ago when a flurry of texts from colleagues at the CBC started blowing up my phone. The missives were mostly questions about how much information any of us had—could we fill in the blanks, did we know what was really going on. But the common thread in every message was the acknowledgement that the things we'd been whispering about, the public secrets we'd all been sort of keeping might actually be true. Because even though at that point we didn't know much, we knew.
Why has the CBC not covered this horrific terrorist attack
Fuld was a 45-year-old father of four best known for being a passionate and articulate defender of Israel, as a combat soldier who enlisted in the IDF and in the war of ideas in the realm of pro-Israel advocacy.
Here in Canada, the Globe and Mail, CTV News, Toronto Star, National Post (in print and online), and most PostMedia newspapers all covered the attack (see appended below), prominently we might add, yet we have yet to see any coverage by CBC Online, Radio or TV.
Why has the CBC, Canada’s public broadcaster with considerable resources, not covered this horrific terrorist attack that is most newsworthy?
CBC is not about Canadian programming but programming Canadians
With the CBC’s TV ratings down 40% to a specialty channel-like 5% share of viewers even before it lost its NHL contract, according to Canadian Media Research, it’s worth asking again what has gone wrong with the Mother Corp and what should be done about it? The answer to the first question is that it no longer represents ordinary Canadians to themselves in a way they like or even recognize. So when its funding comes under scrutiny, it is not surprising that most Canadians collectively yawn while watching any of the myriad other channels available to them on various media platforms.
Someone recently observed that the CBC is not about Canadian programming but programming Canadians to its enlightened view of how the world should work. Look at the litany of in-house CBC stars and ask if any are representative of ordinary Canadians and their values?
Ombudsman Finds CBC Reporting Imprecise and Lacked Context
In that alert, we flagged a biased report by Susan Ormiston that aired on CBC The National on July 23.
Ms. Ormiston’s stating that Israel undertook this daring and dangerous humanitarian operation as essentially a smokescreen to deflect attention and criticism away from its military efforts in Gaza, was unfounded and was a highly editorialized and inflammatory statement, instead of being neutral and objective.
CBC Broadcasts Outrageous Jewish Conspiracy Theory
Disturbingly, on May 20, CBC’s “The Weekly” news program aired an odious “news report” and “interview” that was nothing short of a Jewish conspiracy theory. The CBC News program hosted by Anchor Wendy Mesley interviewed Ken Vogel, a political reporter for the New York Times.
The CBC program (watch by clicking here or by clicking immediately below) centres on how wealthy Jews (specifically casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his net worth of $40-billion+) effectively control U.S. President Donald Trump and his inner circle which was “instrumental in persuading Trump” to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal.
The report attempts to shame former Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper for having “ties” with Adelson and for their shared values and interests when it comes to being a friend to Israel and for being critics of the Iran nuclear deal.

CBC declined interview with assaulted Pro-lifer
David Menzies of The Rebel.Media reports: Outside a Toronto courthouse, I spoke to Marie Claire Bissonnette, the pro-life activist who was allegedly assaulted by Jordan Hunt during a peaceful protest against abortion on a Toronto street corner, in a video that went viral around the world.
Here are some comments from the video page (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vea9d7slJ0M):
- CBC refused to publish this incident? Yet another reason to sell or defund the CBC !!!
- Yup, getting a little tired of forking out 1.2 billion every year to keep the leftist bs afloat, if they can't be neutral and just report the news time for them to GTFO
- Good for Marie, there should be freedom of speech in this world!!! Boycott CBC
- The cbc is an embarrassment to all Canadians
- The CBC is a Biased Pro Marxist/Communist Totalitarian Government tax payer funded Propaganda Machine. The fact the CBC refused to publish this story is enough proof for me to Start a Movement to DEFUND and Disband the CBC
- and once again the Rebel gets the truth out and the CBC is either silent or telling us lies
- CBC is a disgrace for refusing to cover this assault. Our corrupt government has bought the media bias, let alone mandatory compliance for caucus members on the issue and the withholding of federal summer jobs grants for employers who will not tow the extremist pro-abortion policy
CBC political contributions to politicians
CBC Exposed presents: Fifth Estate Follies
CBC News accused of spreading disinformation and mistruths
Pure North S’Energy Foundation is seeking $6 million in damages from the national broadcaster and two of its reporters, Charles Rusnell and Jennie Russell.
In its statement of claim, filed in Calgary Court of Queen’s Bench, True North says it has repeatedly asked the CBC to remove from the Internet what it says are inaccurate articles.
“Pure North’s reputation and work has been severely damaged as the result of an unrelenting broadcast campaign by the CBC and the reporters through various media which has had the result of damage to Pure North by spreading disinformation and mistruths about Pure North’s operation and practices,” it states ...
CBC Fails to Identify Dead Palestinians as Terrorists
In the ensuing battle, six Hamas terrorists were killed, including a senior commander of the group’s tunneling operations. The seventh Palestinian who was killed was a member of the Popular Resistance Committees according to AFP. An Israeli solider was also killed in the raid. Subsequently, Palestinian terrorists fired over 80 rockets and mortar shells at Israel, several which were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.
In covering the violence which many fear may put Israel and Hams on the brink of war, CBC Radio and TV produced news reports which failed to mention that the seven dead Palestinians were all terrorists. Accordingly, CBC viewers and listeners may have come to the wrong conclusion that Israel killed seven presumably innocent Palestinian civilians.
CBC Ombudsman says CBC journalists were wrong
Precision of language and informed and adequate context, all contribute to the accuracy and fairness of a piece. There were three errors in two pieces on the same subject. I acknowledge one was a live radio interview and the other was an article. Nevertheless, I consider that a disappointing outcome. It concerns me that there was not a broad enough understanding to be able to interpret the information gleaned from the National Capital Commission, which was a source for the numbers. Ms. Zowdu (Managing Editor for CBC Ottawa) agreed that in the case of the date when acquisition of property began, the location of one property and the issue of right of first refusal, CBC journalists were wrong. Committing this number of errors undermines the integrity of the work and does not meet CBC standards.
That brings my comments back to where I started - I think this story was under-researched and failed to meet CBC’s standards of accuracy and provide the necessary clarity to help citizens understand the facts.
CBC Fifth Estate film found at fault
Fifth Estate film found at fault for unfounded facts and false impressions
If you thought that headline was a mouthful, try swallowing a damages award of $950,000 and a costs award over $800,000 as the CBC had to in the libel lawsuit brought by Dr. Frans Leenan.
After winning his case in Ontario's Superior Court, Dr. Leenen said, 'Four years ago we proposed to settle this law suit for $10,000 and an on-air apology. It was refused...The Fifth Estate persisted and took me through 10 weeks of trial.'
The trial judge awarded very high damages for libel against The Fifth Estate and the CBC as well as individual reporters and producers. The CBC appealed.
Why was CBC reporter hired by National Defence
“I urge you to examine this case and consider policy options to firm up confidence in the Corporation and ensure that protections for sources are maintained even after a journalist leaves their post,” says Angus’s letter, dated Oct. 26.
CBC reporter James Cudmore wrote stories in the fall of 2015 that contained leaked cabinet confidences, including a crucial story on Nov. 20, 2015, revealing that a cabinet committee had decided to delay a naval project with Quebec-based Davie Shipbuilding.
CBC executive vice-president term has been turbulent
She may just be seeking an opportunity to regain her equilibrium.
Every media organization these days is tempest-tossed: Global TV’s chief programmer left last week and will not be replaced; the head of Rogers Media’s sports division left the week before, and that company is in the midst of shedding its magazine division. But even though CBC is sheltered from most of the economic effects of the industry upheaval, Ms. Conway’s term has been an especially turbulent one, characterized by falling TV audiences, staffing cuts and an avalanche of human resources crises triggered by the Jian Ghomeshi scandal four years ago.
The CBC Fifth Estate’s Efforts Demolished
There will be a short 20-minute video, followed by a lecture on the book. There will also be a Q&A session, and food and drink.
Fred Litwin recounts how he became a JFK conspiracy freak at eighteen, and then slowly moved to believing that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin. This book demonstrates how the left and the right have used the JFK assassination to drive home myths about power in America. There is also the incredible persecution of a gay man prosecuted for conspiring to kill Kennedy, the ugly story of Oliver Stone’s film JFK, an exposé of conspiracy nonsense on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, how the Soviets tried to influence American public opinion into believing the CIA was behind the assassination, and the secret reason why JFK documents must remain locked up forever. And a whole lot more.
“As a young man growing up in the heyday of Kennedy assassination theorizing, Fred Litwin believed a conspiracy killed JFK. And then he grew, and he studied and he researched. The result is this volume, a thorough, cogent and meticulously argued case for a lone assassin. A seasoned conspiracy skeptic will learn new things here, and a conspiracy believer open to looking at the other side could do no better than this volume.”
- John McAdams, Associate Professor of Political Science at Marquette University and author of JFK Assassination Logic: How to Think about Claims of Conspiracy
"This is a great book for conspiracy buffs—and, more important, for those who debunk such theories. Fred Litwin does a terrific job in blowing up the myriad JFK assassination scenarios, not least in completely demolishing The Fifth Estate’s decades-long efforts to “uncover” the truth. The CBC’s lead investigative show is revealed here to be more than slightly unhinged.”

CBC Scandal: Alleged NDAs and Hush Money
The media in Canada has known about this for over a year. I was recently let go from a contract with the National Post after my reporting prompted Peter Mansbridge's lawyers to file a cease and desist letter. This story is not about Mansbridge having inter-office flings. Nobody has said those affairs were not consensual. What's important is that it looks like those affairs are protected by non-disclosure agreements that include paying the women involved with Mansbridge hush money. This is an open secret, but lawyers and crisis management firms are not letting the story break. Hopefully this video can quicken the process.

CBC News Fails to Substantiate Claim
We asked CBC News if it could substantiate the claim that an Israeli sniper shot and paralyzed Raji Sebteen’s sister and if the CBC could provide context about the alleged incident?
The only information relied upon by the CBC are subjective and partisan claims made by a self described Palestinian “militant” who says he’s involved in “non-violent resistance”. An allegation of this variety, must be backed up by facts. CBC News has not sourced any evidence of any kind: no news reports, police reports, IDF or Palestinian Authority investigations, medical reports, legal documents, insurance reports, and testimony of potential eye witnesses. CBC doesn’t know the exact date the incident is alleged to have happened, nor the exact location. What was the name of the soldier in question? CBC doesn’t know. What is Raji Sebteen’s sister’s name? Has the CBC interviewed her? Has the CBC confirmed that she is in fact paralyzed?
CBC needs money but money doesn't buy smarts
But it's not just money the CBC needs. It's a dose of common sense and it needs a reminder that, while it's a special service, it cannot be remote from the principle that it is indeed a service. It's not an institution to be exploited by those it employs to fulfill their most base instincts.
But while CBC is in a better relationship with this government, it is not necessarily in the best phase of its relationship with the paying public.
CBC needs money but money doesn't buy smarts any more than it buys class.

CBC fans can't explain this riddle to themselves
The Pandora's box of bad behaviour has damaged the CBC brand. It is still unclear what barometer the public broadcaster utilizes to discern which lines can and can't be crossed.
The CBC brass need to pay attention to the general public's growing apathy towards an institution too often in the news for the wrong reasons. Uncomfortable corporate silences. Lingering questions. Unanswered inquiries. CBC fans can't explain this riddle to themselves, much less to lukewarm listeners.
Why is CBC paying huge royalty fees?
Unfortunately this is not the first column by Critch, or anyone else, on the CBC website, nor will it be their last foray outside of their mandate.
CBC is required by Parliament to provide television and radio services across Canada. Somehow along the way they have veered off of that mandate into many different areas. Political columns, one of the real draws for media websites fighting in a sea of headlines, don’t belong on the CBC website, but then again neither does the massive collection of news stories, purchased from Canadian Press and other wire services with your money and given away for free on CBC.ca.
Speaking of giving things away for free, why is CBC paying huge royalty fees to operate a series of online radio stations that compete with streaming services from Google, Apple, Rdio or Songify?
CBC host accused of smear job
After a CBC interview aired Sunday, Maxime Bernier’s Twitter account launched into an angry rant, accusing host Wendy Mesley of a “smear job.”
The tweets linked to the video, arguing that Mesley fabricated a story “about a libertarian conspiracy funded by US billionaires, and implies with her repeated questions about it that I violate Canadian electoral laws.”

CBC series is pure bunk
Barb Draper, editorial assistant at Canadian Mennonite Magazine and member of Floradale Mennonite Church, says there’s a sense of dismay from modern Mennonites at the inaccuracies in the show.
She’s heard from those who’ve watched the full season that it’s disappointing to see them get the accents, clothing, buggies and even the church’s architecture wrong.
And there’s concern those who are unfamiliar with Mennonites here in Ontario will believe what they see on TV.

CBC Fake News latest example
Of course, CBC regularly puts forth a massively biased, pro-Trudeau agenda. The coverage is often fawning and weak, and seems less like the media and more like Trudeau’s own personal propaganda service.
You could even call it Fake News.
The latest example of this CBC Fake News is the preview of Canada: The Story of Us.
Considering the majority of Canadians don’t support Trudeau, it’s hard to imagine how CBC could rationally justify using him as the front-man for their upcoming documentary.
CBC putting Trudeau front and centre turns a preview for something that could be positive into a foolish propaganda piece. It shows that CBC is less interested in acting like a public service, and more interested in serving the agenda of the state.
CBC pushes a politically correct, pro-big government agenda, while sucking up over $1 billion in taxpayers money.

CBC does fake news on purpose
The story, of course, wasn't true. It emerged from an upcoming segment on CBC Radio One's satirical current affairs show This Is That.
In its first season last summer, the parody - which undeniably sounds a lot like other CBC interview shows, mirroring that tone of objective, earnest inquisitiveness and story choice with uncanny accuracy - got the phones ringing at the CBC.
To make the spoof work, they work hard to match the feel of a CBC Radio interview show, from the content to the tone to the music stings.
"In some ways, because that tone of the CBC is such a recognizable tone, you can get pretty outrageous with a story and people will still often kind of think: 'Well it's the CBC, so it must be true,'" ...
This raises the question: Does such a show belong on the public broadcaster, whose flagship programs are based on the news and current affairs?

CBC should engage in some fact checking in world of Fake News
On Thursday March 2, 2017 at 8 PM on CBC-TV a documentary from The Nature of Things with David Suzuki called “Dad and the Dandelions” questions a connection between playing golf and cancer.
In the promotion of the show Nisker states “at a golf industry trade show he sees the array of chemicals on offer to achieve that championship perfection. To his surprise, he hears at the show that golfers have consistently shown resistance to caring about any health or environmental impacts of their sport”.
Cancer and the causes are very complex and to target golf courses specifically in a world where anything can be toxic is a stretch. In this world of “Fake News” CBC should engage in some fact checking to ensure the accuracy and truthfulness of a story before going to air.

CBC Investigation Much Ado About Nothing
On Tuesday, the Civilian Review & Complaints Commission for the RCMP announced they have initiated an investigation of the RCMP’s original investigation to determine if it was conducted reasonably and whether race played a role.
That afternoon CBC published an online report with the headline, “RCMP ‘sloppy’ and ‘negligent’ in investigating Colten Boushie’s death, say independent experts.”
The report quotes several “independent” experts who concluded the RCMP investigation was seriously flawed and the organization “needs a lot more training.”
Were there errors and oversights made during the Colten Boushie shooting investigation?
Did those errors impact the result in the Gerald Stanley murder trial?
“The experts CBC consulted agreed that errors were made, but did not conclude it would have changed the outcome of the trial.”
So what was the point of the CBC article?
Retired Winnipeg Police Service Homicide Sergeant Tom Anderson thinks he knows.
Just another example of race baiting by Canada’s Federally funded news agency says the retired Homicide Sergeant.

CBC Fake News - Trump Win Crashed Site
An immigration website that was supposedly overwhelmed by Americans wanting to flee to Canada because of a Trump presidency was more likely brought down by foreigners scrambling to get a basic travel document before a deadline.CBC News has learned that the website for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada was already in trouble hours before Donald Trump's victory became clear on Nov. 8, the day of the U.S. presidential election.That's because foreign travellers faced a Nov. 10 deadline to obtain so-called "electronic travel authorizations" online before they could fly into Canada. They apparently flooded the website before that deadline to pay $7 online for electronic delivery of the mandatory travel documents, known as eTAs.... In fact, a CBC investigation showed that the website itself had design flaws and wasn't properly tested before going live.

Protest against CBC’s editorial policy
Equipped with signs featuring statements made by Canadian imams on wife beating and killing the non-Muslims, the protesters walked through Bay Street to CBC building at Front Street where they chanted the slogans “CBC – fake news” and “defund CBC”.
The organizers told CIJnews that they wanted to protest against CBC’s editorial policy that according to them intentionally ignores expressions of hatred by Canadian imams, such as statements that publicly condone wife beating, marital rape and prayers to Allah to give victory to Muslims over the disbelievers and to “slay them one by one.”

The CBC is a great source of fake news
The CBC is a great source of fake news. The CBC controls the news across Canada. “CBC/Radio-Canada’s reach is 87%… of Canadians (who) watch or listen to something from their public broadcaster every month.”
But the CBC is our champion you say, an honest source of news in a commercialized world. Let me give you an example of how the CBC reports Fake News.
How could the President of the CBC cheat on his expense claims and CBC printed just two stories exonerating him.
Here’s what happened. The CBC President claimed the same $30,000 in expenses twice. He tried to hide the facts but the story got out. CBC barely covered the story twice, using their own reporters who would be easy on their boss.
With the help of sympathetic big media, the story died.
At the same time, when it served their purpose, the CBC went all out to report the phony $90,000 expense scandal of Senator Mike Duffy. I say phony because the judge at trial said it wasn’t true. Despite the lack of evidence, the CBC broadcast story after story painting Mike Duffy as a greedy, evil person who cheated Canadians.
Mike Duffy-as-crook fake news stories became a daily fixation for the CBC. They disparaged him for his weight, heart disease, his cottage on Prince Edward Island. The CBC dug up every old story and rumour and piled it on.
After a long and sensationalized trial, the court exonerated Mike Duffy. He was innocent of all charges.
The CBC never apologized.

CBC continues to spread disinformation
The “Guns in Canada 101” video in a CBC series on Keeping Canada Safe shows conservation officers saying falsehoods about several parts of the law as they inspect shooters and seize gear. In addition, the state broadcaster’s graphics and captions are either incorrect or paint a picture of gun owners and recreational shooters that many of us wouldn’t recognize.
“The CBC, that government mouthpiece funded by 1.5 billion taxpayer dollars, continues to spread disinformation about Canada’s gun laws,” the CSSA said today in its newsletter.

Update: CBC temporarily removed the video on April 12 after a complaint to its ombudsman.
CBC's biased journalism spreads fake news
CTV News, Global News, 680 News, CP24 and Toronto Star reported on this story in an informative manner. Their news stories included the basic facts provided by the police, such as the name of the suspect, the allegations against him and the Police appeal to the public.
The CBC, the Canadian Broadcast Corporation that is available from coast to coast to coast and is funded by the Canadian tax-payer, reported on the Police press release but omitted the name of the alleged assailant.
Why would the CBC leave out the name of the alleged assailant when it was available to all media outlets?
The name, which appears to be Muslim, would indicate that this may not be a hate crime toward the Muslim community. Giving the name could have reduced fear of anti-Muslim bigotry.
Why would the CBC let Canadians from coast to coast to coast believe that this was an anti-Muslim attack? Does this not intentionally create a false impression in the minds of the readers that is tantamount to spreading fake news?
Isn’t the omission of the name of the suspect in the hijab attack an example of FAKENEWS that only encourages “identity politics” and promotes the narrative that the Muslim community is under attack?

CBC News Sets the Standard for Crackpot Conspiracy Theories
CBC News story was misleading
But, though not actually fake news, as insight into the minimum wage debate, the story was misleading. At one stage, reporter Nick Purdon, moved by the plight of the three men, reflected on how eight per cent of Canadians live like this.
No, they don’t. Eight per cent of Canadians may earn the minimum wage (in fact, the StatsCan report I’m going to rely on here says 6.8 per cent, though that was for 2013). But very few are middle-aged men relying on their minimum wage job for their entire income.

CBC caught pushing fake news
In August 2016, a 22-year-old Aboriginal man from The Red Pheasant First Nation in Saskatchewan was shot dead by a farmer named Gerald Stanley, but that's not where the story begins, nor where it ends.
CBC published a story accusing the RCMP of allowing Stanley to go home on the night of his arrest for murder without making a statement, and not seizing Stanley’s clothes to test for blood spatter and gunshot residue.
But neither of those things are true and there are court documents to prove it.

Fake News On CBC? Who Funds This Nonsense?
As usual, the object in question is glyphosate, the low-toxicity herbicide that has been used for about four decades. It has been recognized for its low toxicity by 100 world governments, most that did their own independent evaluation. It has a reasonable half life in the environment, low environmental impact, and efficacy against a wide variety of weeds.
The opening sentence is just false. "Glyphosate accumulates in all our organs " says Theirry Vrain. Someone should revoke his scientific credentials. There is no evidence to support this position, he is making up information with the intent to scare. He's using his position as a former government scientist and doctorate holder to spread false information.
Once again, CBC lends their microphone and credibility to a non-substantiated viewpoint by someone that has always had damning information about biotechnology, and someone that has almost always been dead wrong.

Never Trust the CBC
Over the Victoria Day long weekend, a group of protesters headed down to Roxham Road in Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, Quebec, to protest illegal immigration and the Trudeau government’s handling of the border crisis.
In response, a group of far-left violent anarchists staged a counter-protest. The leftist mob was violent – against both police officers and a right-wing journalist who accidentally went to the wrong protest.
But how did the CBC cover this?
You guessed it, they maligned the group protesting against illegal border crossings, while celebrating the counter-protesters – even though the latter were violent.

CBC says it didn't know
Keith Stewart, climate and energy campaigner at Greenpeace Canada believes there’s legitimate reason for concern. In an interview with National Observer, he said, “When the head of public relations for the most controversial industry in the country is also helping journalists get jobs, it raises eyebrows.”

CBC has become a purveyor of leftism and social activism
As intellectually warped as the Mesley/Barton smears on Bernier were — and warped is the right word — talk of firing and sanctions is misplaced. The problem certainly demands radical reform, but you can’t fire journalists for doing the very job the CBC hired them to do: to front for a state-funded corporate news organization that has become, by design, a purveyor of leftism and social activism.
Reform must come at the top, and the only way that happens is by stopping the flow of government money that provides CBC executives with the power to shape the corporation’s ideological agenda. There is just one solution: Unfund the CBC.
