Gudrun Schultz of LifeSite talks to the Canadian Television Fund about Richard Stursberg of the CBC’s claim that they were obligated to run The Altar Boys pilot:
- CBC Caught in Lie Trying to Squirm out of Charges of Anti-Catholic Bigotry
â€œUnfortunately, because the pilot was financed with public funding, including tax credits and Canadian Television Fund (CTF) monies, we were required to put it on air,â€ Stursberg wrote. …
CTF, however, said broadcasters were not required to air programs against their discretion. Communications director MaryBeth McKenzie said CBC would have been fully aware of what was in the program and would have approved the script prior to production, in an interview published on CanadianChristianity.ca.
