Petition: Save the CBC Archive!
May 4, 2018
It's a slap in the face...
At this very moment, hundreds of thousands of TV, film, and radio recordings are heading to the incinerator, along with countless records, negatives, and other precious artifacts of Canadian culture and history.
CBC's first copy of Neil Young's Harvest? Up in smoke.Knowlton Nash, Barbara Frum, Wayne & Shuster, Peter Gzowski, Joni Mitchell, Tommy Hunter, and Glenn Gould? Up in smoke. The Beatles' final concert (it happened in Toronto)? The Queen's first visit to Canada? Up in smoke.
This act of madness is taking place quickly and will be done before CBC’s new President takes office, unless we act now.
Once we incinerate Canada's cultural heritage, there's no going back.
Destroying Canada's largest radio and broadcasting archive disrespects the CBC and Canada's culture and history. It's a slap in the face to Canadians everywhere.
