Poor Hubert Lacroix.
The president of the CBC is feeling put upon because, unlike other media outlets, we refuse to write glowingly about how wonderful the state broadcaster is.
Beginning almost a year ago, I started a semi-regular feature called “The Money Drain” that looks at CBC’s refusal to be open and transparent under the Access to Information Act.
In that time, CBC has refused to release the type of standard fare released by minister’s offices and departments under the same access law that is supposed to open government up to the people who pay for it.
Want to know how much CBC paid to replace the Hockey Night in Canada song they never should have lost? Too bad.
Want to know how much employee absenteeism is costing the taxpayer at CBC? They won’t say.
This series, combined with stinging reports on CBC’s failures from the federal information commissioner, has the Commons ethics and access to information committee examining Lacroix’s actions.
He isn’t happy about it.

- This website exposes the CBC for what it really is: a left wing biased, anti-Israel, anti-business, wasteful abuser of tax money that siphons $100,000,000 from taxpayers every 30 days to subsidize their outdated bureaucracy.
- Read about the victims of the CBC bias including the infamous Fifth Estate show’s vicious attack on Dr. Frans Leenen which resulted in the largest libel amount ever awarded against the media in Canadian history. Yet no one was fired, no changes, just more CBC victims.
- Canadians reading this extensive collection of stories exposing the CBC will agree – its time to do what has already been done with other government owned, private enterprise competitive business such as Air Canada: privatize the CBC.
- Sell the CBC now. Use the billions of dollars gained from the sale to pay down the debt; use the $100,000,000 a month (yes, that's 100 MILLION every month) saved from the subsidy to the CBC to improve our health care and reduce our taxes.
- Act now, contact your MP and tell them it's now time "to sell" the CBC!
