Please send a message to Prime Minister-designate Justin Trudeau

For supporters of public broadcasting of all political stripes, the wave of opinion in favour of change evident in the federal election result is terrific news.

The majority bestowed by Canadians gives Mr. Trudeau a strong mandate to implement the Liberal Party’s promise of substantial new funding for the CBC and reform of the manner in which the leadership of our national public broadcaster is appointed.

After a decade of damage at the hands of the Harper government on so many fronts, the new government could well become pre-occupied with other issues and defer the promises of new CBC funding and appointment reform.

Please send a message in your own words to congratulate Mr. Trudeau and encourage him to keep his CBC promise.
