Ontario PC Leader Doug Ford Claims He’ll Cut CBC Even Though CBC is Not Provincially Funded
The new leader of Ontario’s PCs thinks he can cut funding for something Ontario doesn’t actually pay for?
Responding to Ontario’s 2018 budget Wednesday, Doug Ford raised fresh questions about his basic understanding of the issues when he offered reporters a nonsensical suggestion about how he could save Ontario money: cut funding for the CBC.
Only problem with that idea? The Province of Ontario doesn’t fund the CBC – that’s the federal government’s job.
