The CBC is a throw-back to the Communist-era. It needs to be seriously reformed. The arrogance and sense of politically correct entitlement hearkens back to the current Human Rights kangaroo courts. In fact, if you look at Development & Peace, the CBC, and virtually all left-wing, government-funded organizations, you will find a disturbing totalitarian penchant for suppression of information which the public has a right to access. It’s an arrogance that belies their responsibility to taxpayers and donors. That they continue to get away with it is not their fault, it’s ours. These groups need to be either totally shut down or gutted. Either way, something has to change.
Socon or Bust, for instance, is still eagerly awaiting its complaint to the CBC Ombudsman, concerning CBC’s false reporting of the 2011 March for Life. We expect a frank and honest judgement against the CBC.
