There is a reason the conservatives are divisive and that's because it works. Just like Trudeau did a massive public service firing and postal squishing during his mandate the same the conservatives can privatize or sell off the assets of cbc to any one..quite possibly it's competitors or former communications director of conservatives or just scrap the whole network.
As it is right now conservative people see the cbc as a liberal network. . Lefty's swear it's now a conservative network ..in the end cbc is trying to balance itself standing on the fence..and guess what? They will fall off and be never more.
I'll bet the workers at cbc think they are above lockouts and pink slips. But I fear a day with a color attached to it is coming. You know like a black Tuesday or a red Wednesday..and it's not like you weren't warned ...the writing has been on the wall for quite sometime .....oh I better stop typing so you have some time to do some more useless Tory brown nosing cbc...like it's going to matter.
Mr neocon just has to say to the public .."We will take that multi billion dollar savings and pay of some of our debt or create a shovel up your ass work project" and they will be supported...then what CBC? Cry and whine! Or better yet say " we will build an old folks home or spend the money on mri's "...bye bye!
Believe me the amount of money the conservatives are watching being spent on the cbc is driving them mad...and the deficit they have created is making a cbc fire sale so tempting they drool over their parliamentary desks like the wet lipped neocons they are...oh you are going to so pay for playing the right wing game you will get no empathy at all...other than the friends and family of cbc workers groups but who will cover it? ctv?...global? who? The only coverage your going to get will be on this forum....
Don't get me wrong ..I love the CBC but this is what is happening as I see it.
edited to add: During and after the destruction of the Paul Martin liberals while Gomery was going on ..the cbc thought it would be a temporary thing pumping up the conservatives and helping destroy the Liberal party ... just for a few years they thought....boy did they ever screw up. Rule number one never ...I repeat never give a conservative a loaded weapon....don't you know "the only good ____ belongs in the mortuary". chuckle chuckle chuckle
edited again: to add some flanagen chuckles at the end.
