FRIENDS’ Leaders Series about the CBC

In the lead-up to the 2015 Federal election, FRIENDS invited the leaders of the main political parties to share their views on the CBC.

Canadians have been wondering what exactly are the policies of the federal party leaders concerning the future of the CBC.

FRIENDS has worked hard to get the answers into the hands of our one-third of a millions supporters, and other Canadians.

That’s why we invited each of the five leaders whose parties hold seats in the House of Commons to participate in 30-minute webcasts – one in French and one in English – in order to convey their views and policies about CBC’s future. Thomas Mulcair, Elizabeth May and Justin Trudeau responded to our invitation.
