The CBC is under attack!
Pierre Poilievre, the newly minted Conservative Party leader, has made it clear that he is enemy number one of our cherished national public broadcaster. His campaign and political appeals are riddled with battle cries of “Defund the CBC”, and he is showing no signs of backing down. He’s got the CBC in his crosshairs and, if he becomes Prime Minister, he will pull the trigger.
We need you to join the fight to stop him.
The CBC was created to be the nation’s public square – a place where we come together, to learn about each other, to share our tragedies and triumphs, our struggles, and our histories. For over 80 years, the CBC has entertained, informed and enlightened Canadians by proudly placing Canadian stories and perspectives front and centre.
And the CBC is consistently there for Canadians when they need it the most. You’ve no doubt seen and heard how the CBC filled an important role during Hurricane Fiona. In the absence of other news outlets, the CBC kept their radio broadcast on air and created “CBC Lite” so that East Coast citizens could get the most critical information on limited internet access.
