DO YOU CARE IF THE CANADIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION IS SOLD?
The CBC Television network spreads Canadian content, news, programming and information across our huge nation and around the world, promoting Canada’s national identity and brand. No other network helps Canadian culture better or keeps us as united. It was the CBC with the CRTC (Canadian Radio-Television Telecommunications Commission) that brought in the Canadian Content requirements for Radio and Television, forcing them to play a minimum amount of Canadian music and Canadian written and produced shows/programming.
If you like to know about your local news, weather and enjoy Canada produced programs and shows, then you must contact your MP (Member of Parliament) and MLS (Members of the Legislative Assembly) plus let your friends not allow foreign ownership of our national broadcaster. Canadians (82%) don’t want some foreign private company or other country controlling the CBC’s content and advertising to Canada’s indigenous population. Are you one of the Canadians who thinks the 1% of Canada’s GDP (Gross Domestic Product) is too high for keeping Canada informed from a Canadian angle?
Our Canadian brand and identity will deteriorate or even disappear without Canadians owning this precious network. Do we want the CBC to just be another American broadcaster shoving USA propaganda at us? How about a Chinese view to manipulate us to convince our people to do what they want us to do? Whoever controls a nationwide media influences their political and economic desires upon our population base. So let us keep our one lone voice in an ocean of foreign propaganda.
Sure the CBC may be political propaganda influenced by the Canadian political party in power at the time, but at least it is a Canadian political party. It is bad enough that the Conservative Party stacked the Board of the Directors with 8 out of 10 Conservatives who transferred the CBC’s propaganda in their favour. Now that the Liberals have the reigns they are increasing the CBC budget to $675 Cdn Million annually, so expect the CBC to have a more pro-Liberal message. Yes, there are negative things about our CBC but they are presently under our control to improve. Not if the CBC is privatized or the ownership is sold to non-Canadians. I don’t want to see our Canadian cultured drowned out but the plethora of non0Canadian media already oppressing us. Keep our CBC Canadian.
If you want to ensure Canada remains truly Canadian, then donate and raise awareness.
