Lawrence Martin in his column yesterday had this in it. In Mr. Graves own words. He's been giving the Liberals strategy advice that's actually pretty divisive. He was basically advising to the Liberals to start a culture war in other words, create division in the country as a way to win.
In his advice, Mr. Graves could hardly have been more blunt. “I told them that they should invoke a culture war. Cosmopolitanism versus parochialism, secularism versus moralism, Obama versus Palin, tolerance versus racism and homophobia, democracy versus autocracy. If the cranky old men in Alberta don’t like it, too bad. Go south and vote for Palin.”Now the Conservative party is questioning the impartiality of the CBC and has sent a letter to CBC's ombudsman.
The president of the Conservative Party has accused a CBC pollster of advising federal Liberals to incite a “culture war” that pits Canadians against Canadians.This indeed does put into question the impartiality the CBC and it's main pollster. I think this alone is a good reason to cut funding to the useless and biased taxpayer funded public broadcaster.
Conservative Party of Canada president John Walsh sent a letter Thursday to the CBC’s Ombudsman charging that EKOS pollster Frank Graves’ comments reported in the Globe and Mail that day raise “serious questions about the impartiality of Canada’s publicly funded national broadcaster.”
We pay for the CBC to the tune of over a Billion dollars a year and it's supposed to speak for all Canadians not just a few on the left. I don't think we're getting our money's worth,especially in a time of fiscal restraint. I want it gone.
I agree with Ezra Levant, Frank Graves must be fired. If they don't CBC will have lost the little credibility they had left.
