What's this about?CBC gets $1.1 Billion of taxpayer funding a year and what do they show for it? A network that caters to a particular point of view and that competes with private broadcasters for advertising dollars and bids on popular television shows.
Futhermore, they have shown that they are unaccountable to oversight by the Information Commissioner in response to Access to Information requests.
Join thousands of Canadians saying that "enough is enough". Tell Minister of Heritage James Moore and Prime Minister Stephen Harper that you're "opting out" of paying for the CBC. Putting your name on this symbolic opt-out petition is a bold statement that say that you're fed up with the unaccountable actions of the state broadcaster.
Who knows, if the government privatizes the CBC one day, your name may be first on the list for a return on the sale!
