CBC’s Collateral Damage

The effect of the six-week old CBC lockout on Canadian culture as a whole is broadening, and with some broadcast facilities shut down as a result of the work stoppage, a long-planned festival of art and culture created by disabled Canadians is on the verge of being canceled. In addition, Canada’s prestigious Giller Prize for literature is coming up, and if CBC isn’t back up and running, the ceremony could go un-broadcast for the first time in memory.
