Save Classical Music at the CBC Facebook Group

On the heels of recent news that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation will be seriously curtailing the amount of classical music on CBC Radio 2, there has been a huge influx of members at the Save Classical Music at the CBC group on Facebook. At the moment, there is a letter writing campaign going on to express the outrage that many feel at the CBC's betrayal of its core Radio 2 audience.

On the Facebook group, you can find addresses and emails of many of the top brass at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, including Hubert Lacroix, President and CEO, Jennifer McGuire, Executive Director for English Programming, Timothy Casgrain, Chair of the Board of Directors, and Richard Stursbrg, Executive Vice President of English Services.

Now is the time to voice your opinion on this matter, whether you are a Canadian taxpayer (the CBC is publicly funded), listen to CBC Radio 2 outside Canada on the internet, or would like to voice your support as a lover of classical music.

  2. Thanks for the comment. I believe that the CBC's American (and international) listeners are stakeholders just as much as those in Canada who enjoy the CBC's service, although only Canadian citizens finance it via taxation!
