The Con Mob and the Criminal Assault on the CBC
He's slashing the CBC, like only a Con, or a Jack the Ripper could.
He's draining its life blood, chopping it into pieces, and cooking it in his hellish kitchen.
The evidence couldn't be clearer.
But that's not what the PMO wants you to believe.
And this is the Con mob...
Where first they muzzle their enemies, then they whack 'em, then they use the issue to raise money from their ghastly followers, then they do a victory dance.
And then they deny it.
"We are not making cuts to the CBC… They have stable funding. I guess their crisis is their viewing is going down significantly. Hence, as a consequence, advertising revenue is going down, so that may be what you're referring to but from a government perspective, we are giving them as much taxpayer money as they ever have received."
Even though that's just another Big Lie. Even though their fingerprints are all over the bleeding body.
In 2012-13, the Conservatives cut CBC funding by $27.8 million and another $41.8 million in 2013-14. During this fiscal year, ending in March 2015, another $45.4 million is being cut. To absorb the cuts, CBC announced the elimination of 657 staff positions in April. Another 1,000 to 1,500 positions are slotted to be eliminated by 2020 as part of a plan to reduce significantly in-house production.
And even though some who should know are warning the CBC may never recover.
Nine former members of CBC/Radio-Canada’s board of directors have sent an urgent letter to the current board, saying the public broadcaster’s mandate is “in peril” if recent federal funding cuts are not reversed.
The ex-board members, who include a former chairwoman as well as the CBC’s previous president, said the broadcaster, which is mandated by the 1991 Broadcasting Act, would likely die without more support.
And everybody knows that Stephen Harper has always wanted to kill it ...
And feed it to his rabid base.
And the good news? If they're trying to cover-up what they've done to the CBC it must be because they think it could cost them votes. And we'll make sure it will.
By using its sad state to help portray him as a sellout who can't be trusted.
A leader more American or Albertan than Canadian, who hates this country with a passion.
For as you know, he may have his vision of the CBC.
But I have my vision of him and his Cons...
As well as this message for all those who love this country.
Don't let that monstrous Con hog get away it. Send him to the pig pen or the Big House.
Or just give the dictator a fake mustache....
Because a tiny little mustache hanging from his flared nostrils would suit him so well.
But whatever you do, or however you do it.
Save the CBC.
Don't let him destroy our Canada...
