Stable funding recommended for CBC

The House of Commons heritage committee recommended that the federal government commit “stable, multi-year funding” to the CBC, though the committee split along party lines over the future of the public broadcaster, said a Canadian Press report. Members of the minority Conservative government wrote their own, dissenting report, but all all agreed that the CBC should be able to depend on longer term funding.

Noted CP, “There’s little love lost between the Conservatives and the public broadcaster, however, and no guarantee the government will act on that or dozens of other non-binding recommendations — especially if it wins a majority in the next election.”
