In most free and democratic countries, journalists hold governments accountable.

Stephen Harper is trying to put an end to that.

Now that Bill C-60 is the law of the land, the Harper government can exercise control over the wages and working conditions of all CBC employees, including all those who produce news and current affairs programs.

This gives Stephen Harper an unprecedented capacity to undermine the CBC’s editorial independence and turn our national public broadcaster into a government propaganda machine – a state broadcaster!

The CBC must now contend with more political interference than any public broadcaster in the free and democratic world.

A new Nanos Research poll shows just how isolated Stephen Harper’s Conservatives have become, standing alone as a rogue government desperate to control and silence the CBC and other media outlets.

Together, we can hold Harper’s Conservatives accountable for their agenda to destroy public broadcasting in Canada.

Please join the campaign by signing the petition!

About the Campaign

More than 250,000 Canadians* who have joined the campaign to Free the CBC stand together with the vast majority of Canadians who believe the CBC must remain independent from governmental control.

Our task ahead is now clear.
 
We must hold Harper’s Conservatives accountable for their agenda to destroy public broadcasting in Canada.
 
We do not have a single moment to spare on the road to the next election and the opportunity to make Harper answer for his record.
 
With your help, starting today, we will deliver our biggest and most intense on-the-ground campaign in defence of CBC's independence. And this will continue throughout the months leading up to the next general election.
