A Mighty Wind is still blowing : CBC still blows

Heather Mallick : "I am immensely attached to the CBC. You try living outside Toronto and trying to understand the country you live in without having the CBC on TV, on the radio or online. It can’t be done.
If Stephen Harper wins the next federal election, the CBC will be no more."

This is our publicly owned CBC pandering to privately-owned right-wing pressure talking points. Fox News was offended? Please. If you don't want to see some variation of CBC Guest Columnist Ann Coulter any time soon,
let them know.

Now RossK has an idea .....

If I missed you in the round-up, let me know in comments.

Harper has put a note of this incident in his "Excuses to abolish the CBC asap" file.

Paul, that'll be right after he abolishes the CRTC.
