CBC funding is one of the few areas where tax money is actually well spent - especially the radio programming. If you don't listen to it, you are doing yourself a disservice. Give it a try before passing judgement.

If we want to talk about inappropriate spending, why don't we take a look at the province (And city) funding a cloverleaf overpass at clappison's in order to service an enormous power centre (see the front page of the spec today) - which is <10 minutes down the highway in either direction from enormous power centres already built in Ancaster and Burlington.

At least funding the CBC benefits Canadians as a whole. I'd rather subsidize them than subsidize american big box retailers...

THis is just one example of the kind of tax money that easily gets overlooked while people bitch about funding CBC radio because they listen to Q107 and don't give a crap about actual home grown programming.
