CBC loves to expose wasteful spending in government departments yet somehow exempt themselves from that same kind of scrutiny.
Make no mistake, the state broadcaster is a government department taking in more than $1.1 billion dollars of taxpayers money per year, soon $150 million more thanks to Justin Trudeau.
So how does CBC react to access to information requests filed against them? Are they open and transparent? Do they provide the same level of openness as they demand of every government department?
See for yourself what happened with my latest request for information.
As you’ll see, the CBC wants to have it both ways as they seek to unfairly compete with the private sector despite being subsidized by taxpayers, while at the same time try to hide behind an exemption meant to protect government departments from having to release information that may be injurious to the economic interests of Canada. Which is it?
This is an abuse of the system. This is an attempt to shut Canadians out from information they have every right to know despite the Trudeau Liberals promising a new era of openness.
We’ll see if the Liberals actually meant and force CBC to show Canadians the same transparency that the CBC demands of every other government department.
Some how I doubt that will happen though, which is why I continue to say, it’s time to sell the CBC.

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