“The CBC needs to be dismantled” Kellie Leitch promises to KILL the CBC if she becomes Prime Minister

StaffRebel Columnist

The left-wing state broadcaster has been put on notice by Conservative Party leadership candidate Kellie Leitch.

In a press release yesterday, Leitch said “I strongly disagree with the stance taken by fellow leadership candidate Maxime Bernier and his call for CBC reform – the CBC doesn’t need to be reformed it needs to be dismantled. The measure of a conservative is in their efforts to, as the great British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher described it, ‘roll back the frontiers of the state.’ Maxime’s plan doesn’t do that. Mine does.”

“Taxpayers should not have to subsidize the CBC to keep it afloat,” she went on to say. “Just like in the private sector, if a company isn’t competitive and isn’t profitable, it shouldn’t be in business. Private media outlets like The Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail and Le Journal du Montreal are struggling, and we must level the playing field. The days of a bloated, taxpayer-subsidized CBC are numbered.”

In a Facebook post, Leitch went one step further saying “The government has been propping up the CBC for too long.”

The only part of the state broadcaster that will remain intact is the part that provides emergency services to remote and rural parts of Canada.

SOUND OFF: do you like this plan?

Beware of false profits, most people only voted for little pierre to get rid of Harper, how did that work out for us.
commented 2016-12-06 20:47:11 -0500
I would vote for her just for that reason.

@rebelation Rebelation….perhaps I should have been clearer….don’t sell the thing as a working corporation….sell it’s physical assets piece meal as Crown assets disposal….raze the buildings with bulldozer and wrecking ball crane…AND POUR ROCK SALT DOWN THE FOUNDATIONS

If George Soros wanted a propaganda network in Canada he would have already bought one…and who knows…perhaps he already has….I wouldn’t know because I haven’t watched ANY of them in decades…

The components that might actually be viable will find their own lifeboats….the CBC needs Stewart McLean much more than he needs the CBC.

Rebelation Rebelation… Excellent overview and foresight for a potential future problem with the dismantling of the CBC… No doubt Kelly may have taken us down that road and let exactly what you described happen and then claim it wasn’t her fault.
commented 2016-11-28 00:17:23 -0500
Breaking up the CBC will only work if there’s a maximum number of shares one can buy, and that max must be a small number, otherwise, Soros will simply buy the whole thing and we’ll be even worse off. I suggest also, before selling it, bringing a number of CBC staff up on criminal charges, such as Lacroix, for Breach of Trust, thus, setting the tone going forward for those that buy it, that dishonesty will not be tolerated.

Billy Howard:
Canadians have been wanting to open the abortion debate for years.
Hillary Clinton cut her own throat when she stood up on stage and supported late term abortions. And Donald Trump won, didn’t he? Was abortion an election debate prior to Trump? NO.
It has been a known fact that the winning vote in the US is the Catholic vote. Why not in Canada?
Canadians are not in favour of abortion and our lack of laws is not reflecting what Cdns want.
The question is, who will be brave enough to bring it to the forefront the way Trump did?
It will take one of the pro-life candidates of the Conservative Party to do so. eg. Brad Trost.
Dictator Trudeau is laughing in our faces and mocking Cdns. by telling the world to embrace LGBT and feminist views, as though all Cdns. feel this way…… just like he did with his statement about Castro.
commented 2016-11-27 15:58:20 -0500
Yeah I’ve heard that statement before from other people… And this conversation is irrrelevant. you choose not to swat flies I choose to swat is many flies as I can… Let’s just say we agree to disagree.
commented 2016-11-27 15:46:38 -0500
@leviticus 2013….It really doesn’t matter how many things that offend or revolt you that you strike out aginst….you and your family are going to die. And no swing or blow from your hand will change the date that is destined to happen. I do shoot squirells who chew holes in my house….I am more willing to suffer the kharma of doing that than suffer the kharma of the drafts for not doing it. Everything you do…or don’t do has consequences.

Let go of the notion that you are not going to suffer if you “get it right”.

I have attended the funerals of three generations of people who died believing that the second comming of Christ was a matter of weeks away…and that there were living people who were not going to die.

A cult is a cult is a cult is a cult… Black yellow orange green whatever color you say that your cult is is totally irrelevant and only the flavor of the week. I will quote what you said earlier And that was “you’ll suffer for every fly you swat”..
Flies carry diseases and need to be swatted, mosquitoes carry diseases and need to be swatted, fleas carry diseases and need to be eradicated, and rodents carry diseases and like all vermin needs to be eradicated… This is all provable through ancient science and just to bring you up to speed millions of people throughout history have been killed by reckless practices of handling things that are diseased and affect mankind. that includes dangerous philosophies telling us that we should live side-by-side. with virus and disease bearing vermin and insects and just take our chances.
No thank you… Every disease carrying bug and rodent that I come across I will do mankind a favor and swiftly as I can I will take them out..!!!!
I will take my chances with your karma protecting myself my family and others and not let rodents or bugs live under foot in my house or any place else for that matter. Like I said I was a practicing Buddhist for a while until I saw that it was used mostly for rich people’s redemption for a better life the next go around… It’s all fake it’s all phony and it’s all designed to pull us away of our intellectual potential.
Ever see a Buddhist make a contribution to medical science or the lessening of man suffering… ever see a Buddhist build a road and I’m not talking about a pathway to a temple I’m talking about a road that connects one city to another for trade and commerce… No you never will because it interferes with their belief in some cult idea of karma…. I could go on and on with examples of how we’re supposed to revert back to the Stone Age to be a Buddhist but I’m sure any intellect could guess where I’m going with this…
But we do agree that abortion is murder.!!

@jan G I was not aware that he said that …but I do not agree with him…The sect I took precepts in is not the Dalai Lama’s sect is the Gelug or “yellow hat” sect, mine is the Nyingma Kagyu or “black hat” sect. The leader of the sect , the Karmapa is as different from the Dalai Lama as Gunnery Sergeant Lee Emery. He is a no non-sense brook no bullshit strict disciplinarian.

Tibetan ex-pats co-operate in many things but there are many doctrinal differences. Besides, every buddist is responsible to arrive at the truth for themselves and is not obliged to unconditionally agree with any teacher. The buddists I am aquainted with would consider abortion an act with serious kharmic consequences.

@jimmy Reece…the friends of the CBC are welcome to take ownership of it whenever they please….they should put their money where their mouths are and the big blowhard mouths of the CBC should stop treating the people of Canada as if they were a chronic case that needs to be worked on.
commented 2016-11-27 12:31:22 -0500
JIMMY REECE opinionated: "
Considering that the majority of Canadians support the CBC and the fact that they also think she is crazy, I think it’s fair to say that she just signed her political career death warrant."

To clarify, the “majority” is those who were actually polled on the subject. (Friends of the CBC?) I know for a fact I wasn’t. If the CBC is so great, it should survive nicely on private funding as to use an example, PBS in the U.S.! No more tax dollars!

Kelly Leach is a member of an ultra-small immoral minority who would push her personal agenda at the cost of the people using political issues for smoke and mirrors while further chipping away at what’s left of our moral compass..
Brad Trost is a Saskatchewan Prairie boy who’s not a career politician and has done other things for a living. He is our only reasonable choice for the representation of Canadian values for the future….
For a glimpse into the future at Canada under the direction of Kelly Leitch one only has to look at the perversions in Ontario and you would understand her agenda to be nationwide.
Ontario is a mess morally as well as financially and that says it all..!
commented 2016-11-27 02:09:20 -0500
BILLY HOWARD.. Exactly… there are so many things going on it all can’t be thrown away over just one issue…
Canada has been a slow speed train wreck for years now and we’ve come to the place where either we pursue a moral society and survive or we become immoral and Perish.!!
commented 2016-11-27 01:41:05 -0500
Abortion is murder and evolved societies do not participate in the genocide of the unborn…
Abortion for convenience is unconscionable it is also the next logical step for a society going backwards that has lost its moral compass and condones consensual sex among everybody.
Just imagine if people didn’t have promiscuous sex we might have a little more morality in society and at that point people may understand how wrong abortion is..
I would vote for sombody that was for capital punishment and against abortion.
commented 2016-11-27 01:26:21 -0500
Jan G: Let’s be pragmatic. It’s not particularly relevant whether you’re promoting abortion or life – it’s about winning the next election. There are other issues to consider: migration, Sharia law, carbon taxes, debt/deficit, democracy, globalism, etc. Let’s not throw away the election over the abortion debate. When the Conservatives gain power, then the effort on abortion control should be pushed. At this time, debating abortion with a Liberal gov’t in power, would be counter-productive.

Glenn Craig:

All due respect to Buddhism, which I consider to be a very gentle practice, the Dalai Lama supports abortion.
For a practice that does not condone the killing of a worm, in fear of someone reincarnated, abortion is accepted.
I was stunned to hear the Dalai Lama say this and was terribly disappointed.
Maybe you can clarify, however, these were his own words.
commented 2016-11-27 01:09:04 -0500
Saving the life of a child, a baby, a future leader of Canada, is not political suicide.
Donald Trump campaign was predominantly pro-life. Where the hell were you during all that?

I am so tired of people who think killing babies is only for the evolved society. As Shithead Trudeau said in Africa, countries that are not as evolved.

If any of you have children or grandchildren, imagine them, picture them having their arms and legs torn from their bodies, their heads crushed in, their spinal cords cut, and that all happened before they took their first breath of air on this earth.

I don’t hear anyone saying lets support the women who are pregnant and have no money, or the men left them and have no means of support or anywhere to go.

Good for you for supporting abortion in any form. Remember the baby who squirmed and tried to fight off the abortion suction. Remember the young woman who goes through life and is torn apart for what she did.

Remember the woman who was raped and the baby was not only persecuted for what the man did, the baby was executed and the woman had to live with that for the rest of her life.

Good for you. You must all be proud of yourselves for saying you support abortion, but only some of the time.

If the new Republican US government can defund Planned Parenthood, then Canada can do the same.
Do you realize there are independent abortion clinics in Canada?
Everyone thinks they are all hospital procedures. WRONG.
They are being dong in doctor’s office, unhygienic and unmonitored facilities.

WHAT are you people thinking?

BILLY HOWARDD: Most people are COWARDS when it comes to abortion. There is no perfect world but change can take place. Where have you been? Haven’t you seen the upside down change that has just taken place in the US? Aren’t the Republicans making changes?

Anyone who says they are pro-choice, are pro-abortion. There is no such thing as pro-choice. You are either in favour of abortion or you are not. If you think you are pro-choice, you are simply trying to pass the buck; do what you want to do just leave me out of it.
WRONG; if you are pro-‘choice’ you are responsible for, endorse, condone, support and participate in EVERY abortion that takes place……….because you agree to it.
WHAT part of that do you not understand?
commented 2016-11-26 22:04:28 -0500
I agree with Dieter… I get a kick out of these would be politicians that they say they will do one thing that benefits the people in the whole term and the rest of the term is dedicated to dismantling the country for globalist favors..
Western separation terrifies central authority.
but it ain’t illegal..!!

Promises, promises, promises from another CINO.

Dealing with the CBC is easy: declare is a libellous entity and pull its plug.

Counting CINOs to do it is just evidence of mental illness.

Glen Craig… You say you will suffer for every fly that you swat..
Does that logic hold for virally infected mosquitoes and disease bearing vermin as well..
I am not trying to pick a fight I’m just trying to figure out your logic.
I practiced Buddhism for a while and found it in a lot of cases to be the philosophy for rich people as they thought they could turn back the wrong doings in their lives to be born into a better one the next time around…
now this cult practice is trying to be sold to the masses as a religion… It does not constitute a religion as there is no God there is no mention of a higher being… Buddha does not qualify as a God and the followers of this philosophy they only speak to Godhead.
What transcendel meditation tries to do is annihilate the ego and suppress the consciousness thru meditation.
It’s all crazy shit and you can actually damage your brain if you go to far with it.
Getting away from that for a minute… Winston Churchill received his statesman status as a result of being the prime minister during the war… The second world war…
With the separation of the western provinces from Ontario and quebec I don’t think that Brad or Brian would have any problems qualifying as statesman for the love of their country..
With popular vote to secede at 51% the prosperity and freedom that they would bring to the republic would absolutely qualify them as statesman.

OK since people have stated their position on these issues I will add my two cents worth. As a buddhist I believe that you will suffer for every fly you swat…so of course I totally and absolutely oppose abortion. But as a citizen of a secular state that makes it possible for me to be a buddhist I realze that abortion is something I just might have to put up with. Canada is the only country in the world that has no abortion law other than what the medical profession regulates. At least Harper…the cautious incrementalist…outlawed the killing of the newborn. My position is to remove ALL obstacles to right to life advocacy. Virtually all of those activists and the majority of their executive are women. Give them free and unobstructed voice and abortions will decline. Also infrastructure to receive and care for unwanted children.

On gun control….if you can be trusted with a duck hunting shotgun you can be trusted with a surplus T-56 tank…end of story.

The CBC….other than selling off the equipment as Crown assets disposal, the few real pieces gold left like Stewart McLean…will have no difficulty being re-employed in the broadcast industry…The buildings should be razed with bulldozer and wrecking ball and rock salt should be thrown down the foundations.

Brad Trost is a good fellow and his platform is the one I like best…but he is no Winston Churchill…I am disappointed that there are no real leaders in the offering and I fear that unless the showmanship of our bad actor is matched we are really up against it….Don Cherry would wipe the floor with Justin just like Trump wiped the floor with Hillary.

BILLY HOWARD, I am sorry you are sounding like a pragmatist, like Patrick Brown who is trumpeting a new brand of conservatism, “inclusive and pragmatic”. I believe that standing up fir the truth and what is right is the right thing to do fir a party claiming to be on the right. Interesting that you are worried what “the MSM/LPC/NDP/Grn/SJWs”, particularly what the Mainstream Media (the leftist’s allies) will say, that is, bowing to political correctness (aka cultural Marxism). Check out this article, “5 Ways Trump Shows How To Win Elections”:
I will rephrase the last line of this article, “The future belongs to Republicans who care more about what their supporters think of them than what the media does” to the Canadian context as follows: ‘The future belongs to a Conservative Party of Canada who cares more about what their supporters think of them than what the media does.’

December 3 Brian Jean and the rebel are hosting an anti-carbon tax rally to plead with a cruel and uncaring government to reconsider the hardships that this theft in the form of a carbon tax will bring upon all Albertans and affect most Canadians.. Please make every effort to attend this rally because even if we are unsuccessful in moving Rachel Notley to a conscience we will be able to listen to the Wild Rose leadership and what he proposes to do when elected… Hopefully all the older hard-core PC voters from the past Will understand that the parties they knew and voted for from yesteryear is not the same party today and can be persuaded to see the value of Brian Jean and the Wild Rose party.

Are you sure you want me for advisor… I think you got the commonsense thing under control. If we get lucky enough to have Brad for a p.m. he would fix is much as he could… However if Ottawa continues to run roughshod over the west I think our only alternative is to sever ties create our own currency and become an independent republic…
The west if not Canada for sure cannot survive another tenure of Justin Trudeau and his liberal administration… And at the same time we cannot survive another tenure of the Rachel Notley’s NDP.
It just goes to show how critical it is to get the job done right in the first place.!!
The wild rose would institute recall legislation and Brad Trost would fix a broken country back to prosperity and economic health..

Ron Voss: I think we’re on the same side here. While I support the banning of abortion, the reality is the MSM/LPC/NDP/Grn/SJWs etc will make the Cons look like Neanderthals looking to take away women’s rights (which is ironic considering JT’s stance on Sharia compliance in Canada).
My hope is, once a new CPC gov’t is elected (God willing) they will immediately implement some restrictions on abortion, such as the ones I mentioned, then by the end of the 4 year mandate, the MSM will stop harping about it and the success of the legislation can be adequately defended. But to promote abortion restriction during an election campaign, that’s just political suicide.
