Support Public Broadcasting, petition to help save CBC

On November 23rd, Stephen Harper’s secret plan for the CBC was revealed when the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Canadian Heritage mused publicly about killing our public broadcaster! You can hear the audio clip for yourself here

Whether or not I watch a lot of the news I can't help but be a little saddened that CBC may soon cease to exist, seems Minister Moore doesn't think public broadcasting is important. Already CBC has seen huge cuts in their budget courtesy of the Liberal Party, this could make many people lose their jobs, as well it could also make certain news and information unavailable to a huge number of Canadians. CBC is one of the few news companies left that often speaks out about subjects most mainstream news would never touch. The time to act is now, below is a petition to help preserve CBC.
