Why only 600 ?
That's how many people they employ in Alberta.
Good one. :up: Unfortunately, they would never be that kind to Alberta.

I wonder what it cost to produce that dish rag of Norma's?

Maybe this will tell you their opinion of taxpayers money.
There are now 220 more employees with a six-figure salary than before the pandemic. 

As of the 2021-22 fiscal year, a total of 949 CBC employees are making more than $100,000 annually, for a grand total of $119.5 million. 

In 2021 alone, the CBC cost taxpayers $1.2 billion, including $21 million in “immediate operational support” to ensure its stability during the pandemic. 

The CBC handed out a combined $28.5 million in bonuses and pay raises to staff in 2022, which represents about 67 per cent of the latest influx of cash from the federal government. 

The CBC’s workforce has grown by 7.3 per cent since Trudeau came to power, rising from 7,213 in 2015-16 to 7,743 in 2021-22.

Since 2015, CBC management has dished out almost $185 million in bonuses and pay raises, for an average of $23 million per year.

Last year, CBC management issued bonuses to 1,142 employees, for an average of $14,056 per staffer and a total cost to taxpayers of $16,052,148.

In the eight years since Prime Minister Justin Trudeau came to power, the number of CBC staffers taking home an annual bonus has more than doubled, rising from 546 in 2015 to 1,142 in 2022 – an increase of 109 per cent.

No CBC employee received a pay cut in 2022.

I think fluffy was kidding. Penticton does have stations (other than CBC) that are not country/western.
