Rabinovitch: CBC Needs A Makeover

CBC president Robert Rabinovitch says that “CBC television needs a new funding formula that recognizes not just its unique circumstances, but also its unique role,” he said, adding that, with its $7.3 billion budget, the BBC costs about $122 per person. “For less than $1 billion in government money, Canadians get 27 national and international services, in English and French, and eight Aboriginal languages. For that, each Canadian pays annually about $30.”
