It's time to defund the CBC.
Documents obtained by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation show the CBC spent more than $51 million in bonuses and pay raises during the years 2020 and 2021.
In unrelated news, CBC went cap in hand to the government and came back with a 10-gallon hat full of cash. The federal fiscal update delivered another “$42 million to help CBC recover from the pandemic,” according to the National Post. In Budget 2021, the Trudeau government gave the CBC an extra $21 million to “ensure its stability during the pandemic.” This extra money is on top of the annual funding the corporation already gets from government.
Yeah - it's about time i think. Good to see this kind of stuff getting out there.
