$34 Million to CBC: More taxpayer money for nothing

The CBC headquarters in downtown Toronto.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is getting even more of your money despite the fact no-one is watching.

The federal government announced a grant of $34 Million in taxpayer dollars to help the failed broadcaster deal with lost advertising revenues and increased operating costs due to COVID-19.

The recently announced grant increases the federal budget for CBC to an annual $1.3 Billion.

The blame was put on COVID, but the fact is that CBC ratings and revenue has been dropping for years. Just 3% of Canadians watch CBC TV according to recent reports.

The CBC currently employs more than 7,400 people.

Certainly there are better ways to spend Canadians’ money.
