NDP Leader Jack Layton said any new funding requests from the CBC should be thoroughly analyzed.
"We certainly can't let the operation collapse. It's a very important operation for Canada and has been for 70 or 80 years now," Mr. Layton said. "For many communities, and across the country in many ways, it's an important service, so we've got to make sure that it's still there, and we'll have to look at any request that comes forward very carefully."
I used to like Jack Layton, he was like a fuzzy, harmless uncle. Why can't we let the operation collapse? Its not like there aren't other news outlets with the same programming. The channels they hold exclusively will be bought up the moment they collapse and then it just speads stuff out. Honestly, a television program going under doesn't even make my list of concerns in all this chaotic global stuff. Its just a box with pretty lights...
