Plan B for the CBC

In theory the Government should support the public broadcaster and private advertisers should support the private broadcasters but in the bizarro world of Stephen Harper's Canada the Government is ignoring the will of parliament and the will of the Canadian people

and refusing to provide additional funds to the CBC while, at the same time contemplating a bailout of private broadcasters

So it appears that things need to be done backward. Since the Government will not fully fund the CBC this new Facebook group will urge Canadian and international companies to shift ALL of their television advertising dollars to CBC television and away from the private broadcasters.

Please join and tell a friend (or 100)!
