 CANOE -- JAM! Television - TV Shows - CBC: 24Hours axed by half
Manitoba-Saskatchewan regional director of television Jane Chalmers says short-term pain can lead to long-term gain since the new plan promises to position CBC as a distinct public TV service and open up opportunities for regional input in news, current affairs and arts programming.

CBC 24Hours ranks third behind CKY and Global in the latest supper-hour ratings, but Rabinovitch says audience size wasn't a major factor in the decision.

 NDP | NDP declares victory in CBC design team layoff delay
“CBC management has backed off because of the pressure that was brought to bear on the decision by the NDP and public groups that are committed to the future of Public Broadcasting,” said Angus.

 My Blahg » THEY WERE FOR THE CBC BEFORE THEY WERE AGAINST IT
Bev Oda is questioning the funding for CBC television… let me repeat that… CBC television and whether it is meriting the cost from Canadian tax-payers.
But CBC has other media that work far better than the television branch is… so perhaps if the redundancy factor were reduced it wouldn’t be such a bad thing.
And since it is only the television division that Oda is calling for an assessment of, your claim that the Conservatives are not telling the truth is only an indication that you are not telling the truth.

 Letter to Hon. Stephen Harper Re: Conservative Party Policy Towards CBC
Although we recall that similar comments have been made in the past by representatives of the Reform and Canadian Alliance parties, to our knowledge this is the first policy statement on public broadcasting by the Conservative Party of Canada.
We draw to your attention that a very strong majority of current supporters of your Party, and almost all Canadians whose second choice is the Conservative Party, support funding for a strong CBC and believe that government should work to build a culture and identity distinct from the US.
Drawing from the leadership of R. Bennett, who created the CBC, and Dalton Camp, one of the founders of the Friends, who described the CBC as one of the few national institutions that still works, we invite you to reflect on the implications of your comments and to clarify them without delay.
