Let's close the tax loophole and save local media

Giant American companies such as Google, Facebook, YouTube and many others are sucking the lifeblood out of Canada’s media economy – threatening the very future of our local TV, newspapers and radio stations – even hurting the CBC. A loophole in Canada’s tax system is actually making this happen.

Please send a message to Prime Minister Trudeau asking for this loophole to be closed.

Reform the Board

For too long, friends and supporters of the government-in-power have been appointed to oversee and govern our CBC. Stephen Harper abused this power to an unprecedented extent. Today, 8 of 10 members of the CBC Board are or have been donors to the Conservative Party. Harper has ensured his hostile agenda will live on by appointing some Board members to serve until 2020, the year after the next election. 

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION TO HELP GET POLITICS OUT OF CBC GOVERNANCE.
