Canada’s state broadcaster has been busy proving themselves to be one of the most devoted enemies of freedom of speech and information sharing in the country.
I feel comfortable saying this based on the more than 400 pages of emails, memos and documents I’ve reviewed in what was their attempt to cover up their efforts to protect Justin Trudeau from attack ads. They even tried to censor the internet.
You may recall that CBC got angry with the Conservative Party for using a clip from one of their many behind the scenes, all access, Peter Mansbridge and Justin hang out moments in the now infamous and certainly ridiculous comments he made about the Boston Marathon bombers.
The CBC didn’t stop there and began on a multi-year push to have CBC news footage protected from being used in political ads despite existing jurisprudence, the law and CBC’s own legal opinion showing they didn’t have a leg to stand on.
They were relentless in their effort to maintain control of information for their own purposes even if it meant going against the principle of free speech, copyright law and access to information that they themselves rely on.
Shame on CBC, shame. I don’t know about you but I expect more for my $1 billion.
Yet another example of why it’s time to sell the CBC.

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