Don't you get newsworld anyways though?

Anyways, I'm fine with no reality shows.. but for the Senate to go as far to say to drop other Canadian sports and the like? Thats ridiculous.

So if they *really* wanted to change the CBC into what they want it to be, might as well just spin off and privatize CBC anyways since they want to totally change any identity that it had. (they'd be better off making a new network)
Point taken.

BTW as far as I know, CBC doesn't show any reality shows currently, or at least they aren't major ones. Mostly whats on CBC is Canadian TV series, Curling, CFL, Hockey, and the News.
Well, because CBC is funded with tax dollars, they are especially looked at to fulfill the agenda of the CRTC, a large part of which is to promote Canadian productions. As such, the CBC would probably be seen as betraying its mandate by showing reality TV, which is widely perceived as low-brow and of dubious cultural benefit.

It also doesn't help that, at least in the U.S., reality TV is produced, because it can circumvent multiple union rules that affect standard TV production.

I agree with the reality TV thing I guess. But I think the senate committee overreacted.

i don't agree with removing sport from cbc.

look at the bbc, they show football all the time.

the cbc can too... except hockey instead of soccer.
