Although there are many things that define Canada (YES, okay? YES, we have an identity, for Christ’s sake!), I think of the CBC as the backbone of this country. And there are rumours floating about that there’s some sort of threat to the CBC. I don’t know if it’s true or not or, as my friend and fellow blogger Mark Leslie‘s suggested, if it may be some overreaction to a comment made, but on the chance that this is real, I’m embedding this petition.
If you have ever listened to the CBC and if you understand the importance of the programs, of the richness of history the corporation brings to Canada, of the contributions it’s made to our culture; if Shelagh Rogers and Stuart McLean and Peter Gzowski and Barbara Frum and Jian Ghomeshi, and more, are or ever were household names, please use this effortless opportunity to voice your support.
If you’re not sure what the CBC means to this country, to us as Canadians and even internationally, click on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. This, my friends, is Canada.
