Petition to the Government of Canada We, the undersigned residents of Canada, wish to bring your attention the following: Whereas the entire media industry in Canada is suffering from a massive, but temporary decline advertising revenue; Whereas the Canadian Broadcast Corporation (CBC) receives 40 percent of its funding through said advertising revenues and 60 percent from government allotments; Whereas the CBC is experiencing a revenue shortfall of $171 million dollars and has requested a bridge loan from future CBC budgets to cover the temporary shortfall; Whereas the CBC requires additional money to protect local programming on radio and television; Whereas the news, sports, arts, culture, and entertainment programming of the CBC is an essential service for communities in Northwestern Ontario; Therefore, we the undersigned call upon the Government of Canada to extend bridge financing as requested by the CBC in order to maintain the volume and quality of local programming and prevent job losses in Northwestern Ontario. Contact (807) 345-1818 for more information Please note: You must sign a physical petition sheet to be included in the petition being sent to the House of Commons.
