The CBC is in crisis -- or, at least that's what Liberal Senator Dennis Dawson, Chair of the Senate Transportation and Communications Committee, says.
Dawson's Committee is doing a major study of Canada's public broadcaster.
That study is on summer hiatus, but will continue in September.
The Red Chamber may have lost much of whatever luster it ever had this past year, but this study is just the sort of thing at which the Senate has historically excelled.
A House of Commons Committee could, if it chose, examine the CBC.
