CRTC investigating Global Winnipeg

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.
