A new poll by Mainstreet Research shows that 32% of Liberal voters support defunding state broadcaster CBC news.  

32% of Liberals support defunding CBC

The poll between September 21 and 22 shows 16% of Liberal voters strongly support defunding CBC, and 16% somewhat support the tax-saving strategy. 

29% of Bloc voters, 71% of Conservative voters, and 9% of NDP voters support (or somewhat support) the move. 

Many Liberal voters are tuning out the network altogether. Recent data shows CBC’s viewership numbers are awful. 

In 2020, The Post Millennial wrote an article titled “CBC watched by only 3% of Canadians but funded by 100% of population.”

Last year, the CBC received about 1.4 billion dollars in government funding. 

Lorne Gunter of the Sun said “Canadian Broadcasting Corporation advertising revenues are off a third in the past decade (18% in the past year alone), because fewer and fewer Canadians are watching the state broadcaster and advertisers know it.” 

Despite the network’s ratings at all-time lows and reliance on government funding at all-time highs, CBC paid out bonuses to employers worth over 30 million dollars between 2020 and 2021, as discovered by Blacklock’s Reporter. 

This year, two former employee whistleblowers have slammed the CBC for having bias. 

In January, former employee Tara Henley quit and blew the doors wide open in her substack on why she left. 

“Those of us on the inside know just how swiftly — and how dramatically — the politics of the public broadcaster have shifted,” Henley said. “To work at the CBC in the current climate is to embrace cognitive dissonance and to abandon journalistic integrity.”

In July, Marianne Klowak also quit. “I tried to push through a number of stories that were censored and cancelled. We were no longer committed to truth and honesty,” she said

Earlier this year, The Counter Signal reported that CBC was forced to print a correction nearly every week to combat their own misinformation.
