Statement made on 19 June 2012 by Senator Marie-P. Charette-Poulin

Hon. Marie-P. Charette-Poulin:

Honourable senators, my question is also for the Leader of the Government in the Senate.

CBC Radio-Canada is struggling to deal with the devastating budget cuts recently announced by the Conservative government, in spite of an earlier promise by the Minister of Canadian Heritage himself to maintain or increase its funding. Our public broadcaster is facing dwindling financial support from this government. We know how important this public institution is to this country to keep us together on a daily basis.

Would the Leader of the Government in the Senate please advise us as to how these cuts will affect our northern services and our regional communities that rely so heavily on the services of CBC Radio-Canada?
