Editor's Comment

The close vote is puzzling.  When visitors have spent some time in Canada, they comment that along with Robertson screws and driver, the CBC is one of their favourite  things they like about Canada along with friendly people.

The BBC and NPR, the CBC offers programming not found on other entertainment and news sources.  Sitcoms are easy to find as are music outlets.

Here are the comments of readers


i love the CBC
_______________________________
For sure they should
_______________________________
It should be a for profit business. Not every taxpayer uses this service and it seems the people who run it are corrupt snobbish better than you. Better off without it.
_______________________________
But a limit amount each year. Not a free for all on the money.
_______________________________
CBC is the voice of the nation it binds us together
_______________________________
Great talent - ruined by politically appointed 'management' who only exceed their management skills by the size of their snouts in taxes.
_______________________________
Absolutely not!
_______________________________
The CBC should run their TV and Radio stations the same as the private ones where they have to get all their funds from advertiser. In that light, all their overpaid executives would be of a job.
_______________________________
I think it is important to have a real in depth news network (CBC) vs the "McNews" offered by commercial networks even though CBC can be somewhat "left" in their views
_______________________________
its time to end special treatment for the CBC. The other networks do not get it.
_______________________________
yes !!! Especially CBC Radio it's the only coast to coast to coast source of Canadian information
_______________________________
My favourite radio....endless variety of info and interest...even when not everything is perfect !
_______________________________
but keep it non partisan
_______________________________
They are double dipping. Money from the public purse and advertisements. Make them self sufficient or let them fold.
_______________________________
We have never listened to it. Do no intend to listen to CBC.
_______________________________
The CBC has become a dinosaur in recent years. The large amount of money spent on the CBC could be better used elsewhere.
_______________________________
CBC provides the most sane news and programming
_______________________________
It's the most "Canadian" thing in radio & TV we have & a welcome balance in news coverage, music & stories. Even the Jian Ghomeshi story was covered fairly & factually, a true sign of professionalism.
_______________________________
Useless wasteland of idiots tolling the bell 0f corruption.
_______________________________
Absolutely not. Total waste of taxpayer's money. They should have to compete like the private sector has to. Any why no disclosure on Mansbridge's salary that taxpayers are paying for? Shut it down!!
_______________________________
Vote yes unless you prefer watching more American TV & becoming more US culturalized.
_______________________________
for many communities it is the only decent station
_______________________________
It's a public broadcaster and helps to define what is important for Canadians to know. To let the free market take over would allow for CND media to be over-run with Republican-styled "Fox" news programming.
_______________________________
Yes. CBC is the glue that binds Canadians together culturally.
_______________________________
The Liberal party should
_______________________________
CBC in no small way, is the glue that binds the country. Funding cuts are eroding the service.
_______________________________
We need a national broadcasting entity to supply a Canadian twist to our viewing. Failing the ability to be profitable on its own tax dollars should be used to aid this effort. Strong oversight and good management need to ne part of the equation.
_______________________________
Not for the salaries the people make there with my tax dollars.
_______________________________
Yes to radio, no to TV. Sell off the TV network and maintain the radio network.
_______________________________
Should the Taxpayer support every other crown corp? NO! Example: OPG
_______________________________
The CBC is a great unifier for Canada. In such a vast country, CBC programming helps us to learn about each other and feel connected.
_______________________________
No money should be spent on this terrible channel.
_______________________________
I believe the CBC is CORE to keeping Canadians informed and connected to each other
_______________________________
if not the Yanks will take over everything
