CBC In Hot Water Over Mini-series

Canada’s CBC is embroiled in a dispute over a mini-series about Tommy Douglas, a 20th Century political leader. Descendants of one of Douglas’s opponents are protesting the depiction of their ancestor. The CBC seems willing to accommodate the protest, but not to the protesters satisfaction. Meanwhile researchers for the series stand by their portrayals and are angry that CBC is considering the protests. “Is there only one accepted version of history? It’s shocking that this is coming from a public broadcaster.”
