Documents obtained through an access to information request reveal that our progressive, Liberal loving state broadcaster really believes they should be in control of elections by controlling the format of future election debates.
After the Conservatives experimented with opening up the leaders debates to distributors and formats outside of the CBC controlled media consortium, discussions on what to do in the next election began right away.
By December 2015, they were having "go forward" meetings at CBC for the election that doesn't take place until 2019.
There is even a memo where CBC lays out the criteria for which leader gets in and which ones do not. Why would CBC be doing this? It's all about control.
Canadians can’t let them do this. No one group, especially a biased, taxpayer funded media outlet, should have that kind of control over how federal election debates are run especially since the media world is changing. YouTube was a partner in one of the debates last time as was FaceBook and when you consider that YouTube is only 11 years old, who knows what kind of new technology will be around in 2019?
CBC may like to think they are the voice of the nation but in reality, they’re the voice for a small, mainly urban, very progressive piece of Canada.
They should remember they’re just one voice among many. It's STILL time to Sell the CBC.

The CBC actively campaigns for Justin Trudeau and the Liberals, so why should we subsidize them?
