CCPS calls for privatization of the CBC

Press Release
Wednesday, 12 October 2011
OTTAWA - The Canadian Centre for Policy Studies today released a discussion paper calling on the federal government to privatize the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

"Selling the CBC will not only save taxpayers $1.16 billion per annum (3.6% of the projected deficit in fiscal 2011-2012) it will also raise revenue that can be applied to the debt," said the paper's author and executive director of the CCPS, David Krayden.

“If there was ever a justification for maintaining a state broadcaster in Canada, that day has long passed. Today Canadians have many options to view Canadian programming. The CBC is no longer needed to fill that roll.”

Pretty simplistic view.
No-one who has a brain, who wants to keep their money, is going to touch the CBC with a 10-foot pole.

Wonder how much money would be saved by privatizing the Canadian Centre for Policy Studies? Let's start small.
Houston, We're dealing with morons!.
