CBC to get $34 MILLION in COVID-19 bailout funding from Trudeau Liberals

DM

Trudeau’s cabinet has tabled a round of spending intended to help Canadians impacted by COVID-19… But the plan includes almost $34 million in extra funding for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. The CBC has lost ad revenue this year after they “temporarily” dropped their evening local TV news programming and resumed it in the middle of June. Management blamed “lower demand during the COVID-19 outbreak” for the 20 per cent drop in advertising dollars in the first quarter of 2020. In a statement, Treasury Board President Jean-Yves Duclos explained that the Liberal’s budgetary spending plans will “help Canada thrive and succeed.”
