Keep the CBC

Reader says many Canadians enjoy learning about our multi-faceted and unique Canadian experience.

In reply to the letter to scrap the CBC, R.L. Shunter may think multiculturalism is hog-wash but the reality is that Canada is made up of people from many different cultures.

And many Canadians, myself included, enjoy learning about our multi-faceted and unique Canadian experience.

The CBC does a great job of reflecting back to Canadians what we’re all about.

R.L. Shunter says, “Try listening to some of its programming, a total waste of time.”

That, I say, is your opinion only. I listen to CBC Radio and watch CBC TV every day and I find both entertaining and stimulating. The absence of advertising on CBC Radio is especially refreshing. Does anybody really enjoy the constant wall of advertising coming at us on commercial TV and radio?

The CBC is already the third lowest funded broadcaster in the developed world.

I encourage Canadians to join me in calling on the Harper government to stop these relentless cuts to our shared Canadian voice.
