  1. I would support Cbc getting 3 billion a year but with strings attached.

    1)Only 10% can be used on salaries for the management team.
    2)All shows must have a 24 ep order.
    3)No show can be used to push a an agenda such as BLM OR KKK.
    4)No show can mock any religion or culture.
    5)Cbc would not be allowed to bid on sporting events.

    1. BLM is a protest movement arguing against racial discrimination. The KKK is a hate group (with terrorist roots) that advocates for racial discrimination. The fact that you see the two as equal is maybe an indication CDN TV needs to be more political and challenging — not less.
