CBC Board, Minister in mutual hissy-fit

With the Corporation in crisis, the CBC Board and Minister seem to be in a contest to see who can play silly-bugger the most. It started apparently last week when the Board disinvited the Minister responsible, Heritage Minister James Moore, to a board meeting. This week, the Minister decided to address the Sun and share his thoughts on the CBC with them: the CBC has fat (presumably at the board level) and should just trim it. He did concede, however, that CBC should be funded similarly to BBC, but that would require changes to the Broadcast Act — and we all know that Ministers of the Crown cannot possibly consider changing or introducing legislation to fix problems in their jurisdiction. So, the Board and the Minister fiddle, fuss and fume, while the Corporation closely resembles the Titanic sailing toward the iceberg.
