Posted on behalf of Friends of Canadian Broadcasting:
Another round of severe cuts and service reductions has left supporters of public broadcasting wondering how to make a difference.
Tinkering on the margins or engaging in the old sterile debates are not options. What should be the future direction for our national public broadcaster?
Friends of Canadian Broadcasting is convening this national conversation because the CBC belongs to all of us. Please join us for this important web event right here at The Walrus Blog and at The Walrus Soapbox on Thursday, May 31st from 4 to 6 pm EDT for this provocative, thoughtful, and constructive discussion.
This webcast marks the beginning of a national conversation convened by Friends of Canadian Broadcasting to gather expert and everyday views about the future direction of our CBC.
Another round of severe cuts has left supporters of public broadcasting wondering how we can make a difference. There is a growing groundswell of opinion that we need to fundamentally rethink the CBC from the ground up.
Bring your ideas and opinions about the kind of CBC you want to this interactive forum, or simply plan to watch and listen to what promises to be a provocative, thoughtful and entertaining event.
Learn more and participate in the discussion at www.friends.ca/TheCBCWeWant.
Live webcast begins at 4pm EDT, Thursday, May 31.
