I Heart CBC

A Friends of Canadian Broadcasting petition to save the beloved broadcaster.

"On November 23rd, 2010, Stephen Harper's secret plan for the CBC was revealed when the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Canadian Heritage mused publicly about killing our public broadcaster," write the Friends of Canadian Broadcasting on their website.

On Dec 6th, 2010, the matter of the government's plan for the CBC was raised in Parliament and Heritage Minister James Moore was asked to disavow his Parliamentary Secretary's idea of cutting all funding to the CBC. "Twice Minister Moore was asked to dismiss the notion that the government should kill public broadcasting. And, twice he refused to do so," says the Friends' website.

The CBC has been an important part of Canadian culture for decades. It has faced threats on multiple occasions and now, it is under attack again. Canadians who value the CBC as an important cultural institution can stand behind the Friends of Canadian Broadcasting and sign their petition to save public funding of the CBC.
