CBC is supposed to be our “public broadcaster” protecting our constitutional rights and freedoms, with a mandate that ties “informing Canadians” to fostering an open, transparent and democratic society.
It’s no secret to those following the e-gaming and CMT lawsuit stories that CBC PEI is failing us badly with fairly and diligently telling Islanders the truth about what’s been going on behind the scenes.
I have been keeping a log of just how poor a job our public broadcaster has been doing on this story, and I was just about to file a complaint with the CBC Ombudsman, but then realized that the first step in that process is to “complain” to the local CBC Manager.
I sent the following letter to Senior Manager, Jim Ferguson, today. I think a week should be a reasonable amount of time to wait to receive a response. If I don’t get a satisfactory response by then, I’ll be filing the more documented and detailed complaint with the CBC Ombudsman. I’ll let you know what happens.
