Recent Major Achievements
FRIENDS’ We Vote CBC 2015 federal election campaign convinced the NDP, Liberal and Green Party leaders to grant major one-on-one interviews in which they competed to support the CBC.

As a result of the FRIENDS campaign and our post-election activity, Prime Minister Trudeau kept his promise to increase the CBC’s budget by $675 million over 5 years and introduced an improved process to select CBC board members.

In 2018, FRIENDS took CBC management to task over a plan to digitize-then-destroy physical archival materials.

19,480 FRIENDS supporters signed a petition opposing the destruction and we sent print copies of the signatures to every single board member. FRIENDS kept up the pressure, and by July the CBC had changed its policy.
