Censored CBC Radio One report on Canadian Conservative campus front groups, 20 Mar 2009

CBC Radio One's Evan Dyer reports on the OPCCA tapes released to Wikileaks and
the tangible example of the Campus Conservatives' "dirty tricks" in setting up front

groups on campus, including the Star Trek Club, Star Wars Appreciation, Games and

Leisure, and the Friedrich Nietzsche club at Carleton University in Ottawa.

After running a few times on CBC Radio One's early morning news cycle on March

20, 2009, the story was abruptly pulled. Thus, this tape has been released to

Wikileaks, given the concern that this story was pulled or censored from within the

Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

This story, originally posted to Wikileaks, has been written about in the Ryerson

Free Press, the Cord Weekly, the Queen's Journal, has been the subject of

countless blogs, and the Canadian Federation of Students issued an official press

release about it.

This CBC Radio One story, however, uncovers a new angle of this issue, which is an

actual case of Conservative front groups being set up on a university campus.
