Unlike commercial broadcasters that serve their shareholders’ private interests, CBC exists to serve the public’s civic interest.
CBC was once a world leader in broadcasting, but after more than three decades of cuts, it is practically on life support. The BBC receives $100 per person per year! Norway’s public broadcaster gets $162 per year. But CBC gets a measly $34! How is that OK?
Think about what CBC could do with even $50 per person! Join our #CBCFightFor50
With $50 per Canadian per year, CBC could deliver more quality journalism to secure our democracy, and it could produce more Canadian drama, comedy and current affairs programming to defend and advance our culture.
Canadians deserve a strong public broadcaster.
