THE BENEFITS OF CBC’S FOOD BANK DAY PALE
WHEN COMPARED TO THE DAMAGE THE CBC
By Dan Murray
Once again this year, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has held its annual Foodbank Day across Canada. According to the Corporation, this one-day event provides relief to the poor all over the country. In B.C. alone, it raised over $1 Million.
The problem is that on the other 364 days of the year, the CBC has allied itself with the immigration lobby which seeks to increase the number of newcomers, many with poor skills, conflicting different cultures and numerous dependents. That alliance has created a huge number of problems for working Canadians.
In fact, the issues created by the CBC’s alliance with the immigration industry vastly outweigh any good done by its one-day food drive.
For example, as two veteran Canadian economists have demonstrated, the sad truth is that unnecessary high immigration costs Canadians about $35 Billion per year.
Worse, as UBC Statistics Professor David Ley has shown, relentless and unnecessary high immigration has caused unaffordable housing in Vancouver, Toronto, and many other parts of Canada.
It is turning most of our cities into social disasters by swamping Canada’s majority population.
The CBC had a choice; it could have helped to expose the damage that unnecessary immigration has caused. But it chose to suppress information about these problems. In doing so, the CBC has helped to destroy the lives of hundreds of thousands of Canadians.
Here is one major question :
Why did the CBC not do what it was morally obligated to do? After all, Canadians collectively give the CBC well over $1 Billion a year.
The point is that the CBC has lost its moral compass. It has adopted the naive Woke philosophy that there should be no borders in the world and that the needs of non-Canadians should take priority over the needs of Canadians.
Because of that philosophy, it no longer thinks the public has the right to determine what it wants to do. In fact, the CBC has decided to tell the public what it should do. In effect, it has set itself up as the moral arbiter of Canada, an unelected government of experts.
This desire to mold public opinion, rather than to reflect it, is clearly anti-democratic, autocratic, and injurious to the public order.
There are a number of solutions to the problem of an out-of-control public corporation like the CBC. The first would be to turn the CBC into a private Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) funded by donations. The cost should be borne by current Woke activists themselves. B.C.’s successful Knowledge Network should be considered as a model.
The other is to force private broadcasting, much of which is failing, step into the breach, and provide coverage across Canada funded by advertising. Shutting the CBC should be a shot in the arm for them.
Yes, that would mean thousands of CBC employees would find themselves out on the street, competing for available jobs with a wave of people across the country Does that make you shed a tear for the CBC?
It shouldn’t– because finally, over-paid, arrogant CBC staff would feel the pain they have for many years inflicted on hundreds of thousands of Canadians.
That would be poetic justice indeed.
