Yup.

And unlike all the other echo chambers available, all taxpayers in Canada are stuck with paying for this echo chamber to continue to exist.

It's a $1.4 BILLION sink hole.

I truly wish that in the not too distant future more people would say what you did, and that CBC is nothing more then long forgotten nightmare.

CBC is costing taxpayers $1.2 BILLION yearly.
What could Canadian taxpayers get for that $1.2 BILLION if CBC disappeared?

It would pay the salaries of 13,000 RNs.
It would pay the equivalent of every person's income tax in the city of Nanaimo.

CBC has 143 directors. :200:
They each earn over $130,000 annually. :200:
Since 2015 CBC has given out $153 MILLION in bonuses and raises. :200:

We can't afford the CBC. Canada's debt is growing by almost $400 MILLION daily.

Journalists should not be paid by the government. It is a conflict of interest.

If you love CBC, pay for it yourself. Don't put the average Canadian on the hook for it.

Now for those wondering where this info came from, don't be an ignoramus and attack the messenger.

CBC delving into the issue that is top-of-mind for Canadians:

Shark Week has too many white men and is prone to 'fear mongering'

It would be hilarious if it weren't costing us billions of dollars to pay for this crap.

The researchers make a solid case. The show is mostly showing white men and dangerous sharks. They can continue to do as they wish but media coverage this negative will have an effect on viewership. The leadership and example set by our current prime minister has many in our society focused on inclusion.

Here is a column, typical of the agenda CBC is pushing. If they were to allow counter opinions, with comments on similar topics, fair enough, but they don't.
Ergo, they must be defunded.

Canada embraces its immigrant soccer stars. Where's the support for migrant rights?
Huh, somehow this writer equates our immigrant soccer players to (illegal) migrant rights. :200:

Thank goodness the readers saw through this literary diarrhea.

Illegal immigration is illegal for a reason. The CBC just plain sucks. Just so awful.

Thanks Spiffy, gosh, did I miss this story or simply forget about it?

The original story.

Here's an update, it's now $3 million.
