So the taxpayers give CBC roughly a billion dollars a year to the Canadian owned CBC to provide us with honest news information Hopeless Harper gave his foreign friends in the oil industry 15 billion dollars. How much of that comes back to them under the table at election time?

The conservative government has taken over from the Liberals as the most corrupt government Canada has ever had. Federally and right across the provinces.

"the CBC ... often holds the government to account and has a good record of public-interest investigative reporting"

That would be news to millions of Canadians, who have watched (and increasingly don't watch) the Mother Corpse timidly retreat before the onslaught of successive hostile governments in the last few decades. One example suffices: its craven hiring of Kevin O'Leary to attack public institutions and recently to savage Chris Hedges for offering an insightful assessment of Occupy Wall Street.

CBC Radio is not as bad, and TV still has its moments. But the CBC's downward slope clearly has more to do with trying not to offend the powers that be than the public interest.
