ABC looking at 25 per cent cuts

While ABC isn’t talking numbers, speculation is that it may slash 25 per cent of its workforce, and rely more on contract/freelancers. I seem to recall CBC doing this 20 years ago, but not having enough money to hire those magical freelancers. The quality of the news hasn’t been that good since, nor have their TV ratings improved (CBC radio one has held up pretty well over the past decade.)
