Days to free the CBC!

To the Standing Committee on Finance:

As Canadians concerned about the independence of the CBC, we call on you to remove from the budget bill the government’s power to dictate collective bargaining and terms for other salaries and working conditions at Canada’s longstanding public broadcaster. The government must not violate what has always been and must remain an arm’s-length relationship between an independent CBC and any government in power.

Days to free the CBC!

The new Harper budget bill is going to do something crazy -- take hold of our public media and turn the CBC into a place where Harper's cronies could control the newsroom.

This is how tyrannical governments behave -- they try to silence and control independent media. But the bill goes into committee in days and we can get this small collection of MPs to amend the bill and take their hands off our CBC before it's too late.

Sign the petition and when we reach 100,000 voices to free the CBC, Avaaz will deliver our call directly to the finance committee before the hearings begin!
