Three members of the Friends of Canadian Broadcasting* –Dennis Howlett, Dara Kennedy & Mark Finnan– share their views on how the CBC (and Canadian media in general) might show up as campaign issues in the federal election this fall. This panel also responds to common criticisms of the CBC (political bias, target audiences and cost to taxpayers) and the risks associated with inadequate funding. This podcast was recorded on June 4th at Trent Radio and broadcast on 92.7 FM in Peterborough on June 20th.
