CBC faces revenue shortfall of up to $65 million

While the cuts at CTV and Global are well-known, it looks like more may be ahead for the CBC. Today’s Globe reports they need an additional $65 million because of projected ad shortfalls.  No doubt there is a significant portion of the federal Conservative caucus who would relish seeing cutbacks at the CBC (they have widely viewed it as pro-Liberal and anti-Conservative) wouldn’t it make more sense to have a national debate on the role of CBC in the 500 channel, multi-media universe, define those roles, then fund them accordingly so they could fulfill them.
