‘DEFUND THE CBC!’ Exclusive: O’Toole’s promise if he’s PM

 

The federal government should appoint serious leadership for the national broadcaster, with a mission and budget to make it a network the country can be proud of; Canada has the talent and the need. It is sobering to recall that Vincent Massey and his commission to examine Canadian culture, recommended in 1951 that the CBC be the country’s sole telecaster. My father, who died many years ago, having heard and disapproved the first CBC broadcasting efforts, said a number of times that, “Some have been more vociferous in their criticism of the CBC than I have, but few have been more consistent.” As years pass, in this as in some other matters, I see the wisdom of his perspective.
