It's Time to Fire the Harper Cons at the CBC
For nine long years Stephen Harper slowly strangled the CBC, or bled it dry.
He slashed its budget, he killed thousands of jobs, he turned it into the Conservative Broadcasting Corporation.
But now the depraved tyrant has been toppled, before he could finish it off.
And it's time to take back the CBC, and give those Cons the boot.
The two unions representing the vast majority of CBC and Radio-Canada employees across the country are calling for president and CEO Hubert Lacroix and the board of directors to step down, citing a lack of confidence in their leadership.
“Over the last eight years, CBC/Radio-Canada has been systematically crippled, with unprecedented programming cuts across the country and questionable plans to sell off production assets and buildings, which threatens the public broadcaster’s ability to produce programming in both official languages,” says a statement on the website of the Canadian Media Guild...
“Along with constant cuts to staff — more than 25 per cent of workers laid off in five years — this damage is the vision of this president and board.”
For not only have they served as Harper's hatchet men and women, and caused that Canadian institution enormous damage. Not only was it outrageous of them to announce that they are selling off all its buildings in the middle of an election.
So Harper could pleasure his rabid base, who hate the CBC as much as he does...
With a passion that can only be described as insane and depraved.
Despite the fall of their Great Leader, and despite this promise from Justin Trudeau..
The Con board is still preparing to make even more cuts.
The unions say that while the incoming Liberal government has promised to reinvest in CBC/Radio-Canada, top brass at the public broadcaster still intend to move forward with cuts to staffing and production.
So they've got to get the boot, and as soon as possible, because they're clearly out of control.
And while we're at it, since Rex Murphy has also lost his great protector....
Maybe the CBC's hapless stooge managers can now summon up the courage to give that old Con tea bagger and oil pimp the boot as well...
Because his continuing presence on the CBC's flagship news show The National, is an affront to every journalistic principle in the book.
And nobody symbolizes the Con takeover of the CBC, and its corruption, more than he does.
You know, Stephen Harper has had almost ten years to place his Con cult members in positions of authority all over the country. So they can continue dismantling it long after he has gone. They are the enemy within.
So if we are going to take our Canada back, we've got to take our fate out of their hands, and clean house.
Take back our country institution by institution, silo by silo, value by value.
And we might as well start with the CBC...
Never forget what that monster did to it.
Never forget what he did to our Canada...
