This is better than the initial 5% cut , but it is far from selling of this leftist propaganda machine. Still cutting 10% a year for 5 years would be a good start!
Heritage Minister James Moore wants to slash CBC’s budget by 10 per cent, The Huffington Post has learned.
Although a government decision is far from complete, Moore has discussed his wish to see the public broadcaster’s $1.1-billion allocation cut by ten per cent, sources said. Moore had earlier this summer suggested the CBC could face a cut of "at least 5 per cent."
According to Ian Morrison, the spokesman for Friends of Canadian Broadcasting, that would be a devastating blow to the CBC.
“Ten per cent would have just huge consequences. It would result in station closures,” said Morrison, who warned that small stations serving rural areas would be particularly vulnerable.
