- 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anti-business, wasteful abuser of tax money that siphons $100,000,000 from taxpayers every 30 days to subsidize their outdated bureaucracy.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.
