Thank you for copying me with your message to the Prime Minister regarding the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). I appreciate you taking the time to share your views with me.Our Government has launched a comprehensive deficit reduction action plan that will focus on improving the efficiency and effectiveness of government operations to ensure value for taxpayers’ money.
All federal departments, agencies and Crown corporations, including the CBC, have been asked to identify and to propose efficiencies. The results of this process will be part of Budget 2012.
Our Government provides annual funding to the CBC and expects the Corporation to use these public funds in the most efficient and accountable manner possible. We will continue to work closely with the CBC to ensure that public funds are managed wisely.
Pierre Poilievre, M.P. Nepean-Carleton
