“CBC’s recent cancellation of its local TV newscasts demonstrates just how frail this treasured institution has become after a generation of cuts. Canadians want Ottawa to equip CBC with the resources it needs to reliably provide timely, accurate, local information to all regions of our vast country,” Bernhard said.
These observations are based on a hybrid telephone (land- and cell-lines) and online random survey of 1,036 Canadians, 18 years of age or older, between March 30th and April 2nd, 2020 as part of an omnibus survey. The margin of error for this survey is ±3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20. The research was commissioned by FRIENDS of Canadian Broadcasting and was conducted by Nanos Research.
