John Tory rips into CBC over accountability

- December 1st, 2010

John Tory is a passionate man but not an excitable man. He’s passionate about politics, Toronto and football but he’s not one to get excitable and lash out. I’ve known John a little while now – covered him as a politician and worked with him as a broadcaster. Still I was shocked to hear how angry he is at CBC for their accountability, or lack of accountability as the case may be.

I’d been asked to go on John’s show and chat about Sun Media’s ongoing series on the CBC called Down the Drain where we look at where your money is going, the $1.1 billion we give the CBC each year. Listen as John tory takes listeners from explaining why he used to defend the CBC and why he no longer will.

    Is there supposed to be some audio there somewhere?

    Good audio. Do not give up Brian. This needs to remain front and center. Hopefully a commons committee will pick this up and order the production of these documents. That should make for an interesting pissing match which the CBC hasn’t a hope in winning.

    100% behind you! Go get ‘em!

    Please keep hammering the CBC as publicly as possible on the issue. Taxpayers will completely flip out when the truth is known.

    How would CBC like to be Wiki-leaked? I guess some day a ceeb employee or three will decide enough is too much and start posting. I wish.

    Keep up the great work Brian!!!
