The CBC is watched by by just three percent of the Canadian population, yet it is funded by 100 percent of the population, according to a recent Globe and Mail article. “It cannot be overstated how badly CBC TV is run. During the coronavirus pandemic, it’s been one stumble after another. It’s hard to even know where to start,” led the article.

In the early days of the pandemic, for instance, the CBC spent $2 million on a Creative Relief Fund.
