Is the CBC taking secret payments to give out special favours?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

I saw a strange story the other day about the British state broadcaster, the BBC. Believe it or not, the BBC has an even worse issue with bias than our own CBC.

In the story, we find that the BBC had received million of pounds in grants from the European Union and other local authorities in the last few years. As well, it has been established that their commercial arm BBC Worldwide has borrowed over £141 million from the European Investment Bank since 2003. 

That's almost a quarter of a billion dollars in Canadian money. 

This story was covered by the Telegraph, who made the obvious point that borrowing such a large sum from the European Union while also reporting on Brexit is compromising.

Whoever pays the piper calls the tune. 

In Canada, Justin Trudeau was convicted of breaking the Conflict of Interest Act after lying about taking a secret, $200,000 vacation on Aga Khan's island in the Bahamas. Since Khan applies for massive cash grants from the Canadian government, it's in the public interest to know about these secret deals.

So what about the CBC? They routinely redact access to information requests. They outright refuse to divulge information touching on their editorial work. They even refuse to divulge the salaries of the government journalists working there.

We know some of the secret deals that go on behind the scenes at the CBC. David Suzuki uses the state broadcaster to promote his own business even while his foundation was a registered lobbyist. The CBC actively protected Jian Ghomeshi when his scandal broke, setting up a “war room” of senior managers, with the express purpose of discrediting Ghomeshi’s accusers

It's not only Suzuki and Ghomeshi who twist the CBC's arm for their own gain. We know that Parks Canada has made cash contributions to the state broadcaster.

So I started poking around on the CBC's website and I can see that they're still selling access. One example is a little show called Recipe to Riches.

It was a game show for amateur chefs. It was promoted across their platforms, including on Steven and Chris.

But it was bought and paid for by Loblaws, the crooked Liberal company that got $12 million for free fridges. We don't know how much Loblaws paid the CBC to run the show. But take a look at the release -- specifically, where show contestants agree that their recipe, name and likeness is licensed to Loblaws.

Go on a CBC game show, and you've just sold your rights to Loblaws. For free.

So how much money did Loblaws give to the CBC for this promotion? And how much of that money was part of a secret deal to prevent our state broadcaster from calling out this massive company for their bread price fixing scandal and for their free $12 million grant?

Loblaws was buying fake news from the CBC, just like the EU was buying fake news from the BBC.

CBC has been doing that for a long time now , and not even secretly when it comes to their tax funding.

Ben is a true coward, who attacks the brave, that gave all for not only their country……………………………….

Yes Deborah, It is a pity that that some of those kind people are not around today.

Ben is a true coward, who attacks the brave, that gave all for not only their country but for the world. He can stand on his soap box and try to degrade and demean real heroes, but he doesn’t hold a candle to those who stood for truth and freedom. To those who gave their very lives so that we could be free. The shame belongs to Ben and those who think and act like him.

I’m, with you John Williams… The deterioration of traditional Victoria morals by the likes of Ben Isitt is a slap in the face of all active and retired military personnel in the provincial capital of British Columbia… This little turd, I suspect, has never, ever served one day in the service of our nation…

Stephen E. He had given Afghanistan $41,000,000 for Afghanistan’s veterans. He is very generous with our money.
I don’t have back-up, but apparently Trudeau said a couple years ago that ISIS fighters were also soldiers, and they deserved pensions just like other soldiers if they were Canadians. He followed through and brought them back to Canada, so maybe he pensioned the Canadian ISIS fighters off. Sounds like him as long as they were Muslims.

I couldn’t believe Friday’s CBC news where Trudeau apologized to the Italians for the way Canadians treated them when Canada was in WW ll.
Justin I know you don’t know much about Military Conflicts, but they were the enemy, their relatives killed our relatives.
Trudeau is going to run out of groups to apologize to. Obama taught him this skill.

A few days before Trudeau told a veteran that he wished he could give more but there isn’t any money, he had given Afghanistan $41,000,000 for Afghanistan’s veterans. He is very generous with our money for others, but for Canadians, especially our military, he has nothing.

Perhaps sending Ben Isitt a Christmas card with a soldier holding a poinsettia in a horse drawn carriage signed by the thousands of soldiers at CFB Esquimalt and coast guard personnel at CGC Victoria would be a fitting response to his idiotic Marxist causes. He would no doubt blame Neo Nazis for wishing him a Merry Christmas and send it to the police (whom he voted not to increase funding).

Notice to all retired Military Personnel……..In Addition to your $50.00 monthly pension, you can now apply for your free voucher to be euthanized. Available at any Government Office.

I hope a conservative P.M. at some point helps the military, both the veterans and those in the forces now

As for those hippies who hate military personnel, I wish they could be put in boot camp for a few years. The granola goons need a good lesson taught to them.

Maxime Bernier must expose this pay-for-play scam the CBC (Crime and Bribery Corporation) is running. We know that Justin Turdeau and Mr. Rogers won’t expose this. Ezra needs to contact Mr. Bernier about this con game by our national broadcaster.

Pierre Trudeau started turning this country into Clown World and Justin Trudeau is trying to finish the job. Pray very hard that this is the last Trudeau who aspires to run the country.

- CBC – $1.5 billion/year in taxpayer handouts to build a quasi-political organization so they can set up a little fiefdom that produces crap that few watch. Could they be on the take? I’d be surprised if they weren’t.

- The Liberals & other lefties hate the military. They want Canada to be a police state, not a nation state. They want internet police, not actual soldiers. They want to virtue signal how “progressive” they are by praising terrorists.
