Hope for the CBC
The WGC has been heartened by the Liberal Party's promise to invest $150 million in new annual funding for CBC/Radio-Canada, as well as promises by both the NDP and the Greens to cancel the Conservatives’ $115 million cut to the CBC. As WGC Executive Director Maureen Parker says in a press release, “A public broadcaster is essential to the cultural wealth of a country." You can read the press release here.
