The CRTC is now investigating Global TV for broadcasting Jack Van Impe Ministries Presents
Case ID 488394 put your 2 cents in.
I started a thread last Feb, informing folks that the CBSC was reviewing my complaint against Global...it took them 13 months to come to the conclusion that it's okay for kids to watch this bigoted fear monger Sunday mornings (Global Winnipeg). I guess that's what we all expected, the CBSC is just a cadre of media people governing themselves thus inherently biased. We had to go thru this process because the CRTC will not act until the CBSC makes it's decision. Anyway the CRTC have been monitoring the situation since day one and now have the file.
Any reasonable person would agree that Van Impe is a bigot and uses fear/hate to sell his books and DVD's. He constantly attacks Islam and has called Obama a communist and says Canada is a socialist country because of our health care. In other words he's nothing but a shill for the christian right of the republican party and has no business on Canadain airwaves. The other aspect is children under 14 shouldnot be subjected to this type of programming AVGOT rating 14+ re: social issues.
