Its like the U.S. fairness doctrine.
Their is no such thing as a "conservative" station, because:
A) You have to "balance" views. When you have a conservative show you have to have a liberal show too
B) The mandate basically mandates Liberal values:
(d) the Canadian broadcasting system should
(i) serve to safeguard, enrich and strengthen the cultural, political, social and economic fabric of Canada,
(ii) encourage the development of Canadian expression by providing a wide range of programming that reflects Canadian attitudes, opinions, ideas, values and artistic creativity, by displaying Canadian talent in entertainment programming and by offering information and analysis concerning Canada and other countries from a Canadian point of view,
(iii) through its programming and the employment opportunities arising out of its operations, serve the needs and interests, and reflect the circumstances and aspirations, of Canadian men, women and children, including equal rights, the linguistic duality and multicultural and multiracial nature of Canadian society and the special place of aboriginal peoples within that society, and
(iv) be readily adaptable to scientific and technological change;
!!!!!!! Harper MUST revoke this act. Thats the only way to build up the much need Conservative infrastructure this nation needs.
