Mandate CBC As Mouthpiece
The Privy Council in an Access To Information memo proposed a legal requirement that the CBC broadcast government messaging in a “national crisis.” Cabinet aides complained they had to buy advertising during the pandemic.

“In the past, services such as producing and broadcasting public service announcements in times of national crisis were covered under previous agreements with CBC/Radio-Canada,” said the report The Way Forward: Lessons Learned. “Currently the Government of Canada pays the CBC and Radio-Canada like any other media to air ads but there could be new possibilities to create partnerships to respond to future crises.”
