Earlier this week, I received a mass email from Ian Morrison at the Friends of Canadian Broadcasting. This is what he had to say:
FRIENDS has learned that the federal government is poised to announce a new round of budget cuts, despite its $9 billion surplus. CBC is a target, even though two House of Commons Committees — Finance and Heritage — have called for increased stable funding for CBC.
Unless we act now, CBC could suffer yet another in a long line of funding cuts that have taken a tremendous toll, especially at the grassroots.
Tonight I took a few minutes to write a letter to the Prime Minister, expressing my concerns. I encourage you to do the same. The Action Centre makes it easy, addressing it to the PM, Liza Frulla, Minister of Canadian Heritage, and your local MP.
