Posted this comment on Tod Maffin’s blog when asked for feedback on whether he should publish what he knows about job and program cuts at CBC:
If people and/or programs agree to be added or if the information has been made public, it is fair game.
We are all following because we all feel strongly about the cuts. I personally feel like the fabric of our Canadian identity is being attacked with this brutal affront to culture at the hands of a group that likely can’t even spell the word without a speech writer…
That said, Con or Liberal, the Canadian government has supported public broadcasting at a financial level that is almost rock bottom, per capita, in the Western world. We also have the most widely dispersed population base and difficult landscape to cover. That takes money and expertise to maintain.
Among many things, you are a journalist and you have information we need to hear about. Tickle that keyboard and journal for us, please!
