On February 6th FRIENDS sponsored a raucous candidates debate during the Burnaby South by-election.  More than 200 people attended.  It was an interesting evening.  All but one candidate pledged their support for public broadcasting.  Laura-Lynn Tyler-Thompson, the candidate for the far right Peoples Party of Maxim Bernier, declared they will “de-fund” CBC.

Urge Ottawa to commit to funding CBC so it can fight misinformation and tell great Canadian stories from our communities.
