Good one Ryan and thanks. I'm a longtime supporter of Friends of Canadian Broadcasting. Here's what I wrote:

I have heard that the CBC is considering a new local radio station in Hamilton. Hamilton citizens have been woefully underserved by our public broadcaster to date. In spite of the Hamilton Spectator's suggestion in a recent editorial, private broadcasters have shown that they simply do not have the will or the resources to bring relevant, quality programming to our area. Canadians in similar markets across the country have had access to the CBC's quality regional programming, and it is high time that Hamilton area taxpayers did too.

I understand that the broadcaster's ability to extend service to our area is largely a matter of adequate funding. Please let me know what steps you intend to take to ensure that your constituents have access to the essential service that the CBC provides.
