Colin Miles at the Save the CBC Radio Orchestra Rally in Vancouver

From the rally held Tuesday morning in Vancouver, here is footage of a speech by Colin Miles, BC Regional Director of the Canadian Music Centre, on the impact that the loss of the CBC Radio Orchestra will have on the musical life of Canada.

From an account of the demonstration in the Vancouver weekly The Georgia Straight:

A national uproar has ensued from the news that the Vancouver-based CBC Radio Orchestra is to be dismantled, with protesters lobbing accusations of censorship at the national broadcaster.

(Thanks, Cindy!)
