Public Funding of CBC Promotes Political Correctness - Page 2
Essentially, Canada has become a society that encourages hyphenated Canadians--Jamaican-Canadians, Italian-Canadians, and so on. This begs the question, who is a Canadian? Nothing is wrong in retaining one’s culture of origin. However, when government’s policy and funding discourage integration and assimilation in what earlier was Canadian culture, we will experience problems in society similar to those several European countries identified.
CBC is a bastion of political correctness, especially that flowing from multiculturalism. Continuing to fund the CBC will push us deeper to a left-leaning, politically correct country that believes in everything, and so, we end up believing in nothing.
If we continue funding the CBC, among the negatives will be the promotion of a multicultural policy that has failed elsewhere. I pray, CBC’s policies will outrage enough folks, so they try to get government to sell the CBC. Those Canadians who want to continue to fund CBC can buy government’s shares and so, compete with commercial media. That is fair, isn’t it?
