I Am Skooter
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
Huge orange flying boat rises off a lake / Thousand-year-old petroglyphs doing a double take / Pointing a finger at eternity / I'm sitting in the middle of this ecstasy

Very Good Questions About CBC

A Globe & Mail article about Groupe Videotron caught my eye.

Videotron pulls plug on Canadian Television Fund payments


“We fail to understand why the public broadcaster CBC/SRC should, in addition, receive a significant contribution and guarantee from the Canadian Television Fund, which is funded primarily by the private sector,” Quebecor added in a release.

Videotron is suspending its payments immediately, the company said. It was not known whether Shaw has done the same.

These are very good questions, and ones that need to be asked. The sheer volume of methods the CBC uses to receive public money is astonishing.
