CBC hides hockey dough as vital to national interest

OTTAWA – With the NHL lockout dragging into its third month it’s no secret that CBC’s revenue from live games is zero, but the state broadcaster has also released documents claiming zero revenue for the entire 2006-07 season when there was no lockout.

Of course, the CBC did earn revenue from ad sales and other revenue streams but documents released to QMI Agency show all monetary figures stripped out, with CBC claiming it would be against the economic interests of Canada to release the information.
