Hahahahahahaha! CBC Union wants Taxpayers to pony up and increase Ceebs budget by 50%

OTTAWA – The union representing CBC workers says the broadcaster needs a 50% increase in funding on top of the $1.1 billion it already gets from taxpayers.

The CBC and its French branch, Radio-Canada, receive roughly $29 per Canadian, annually.

The union for the English branch said the CBC credit must increase to over $43.50 per Canadian over a five-year period for the corporation to stay “strong and independent.”
