Before, during and after the May 2011 election, the Conservatives promised to maintain or increase funding to the CBC. At the first opportunity Harper slashed its funding, claiming the CBC had to do its part to reduce the deficit.

This is a deception.
Under Harper’s watch CBC funding has been cut 7%, while spending on other government programs has soared 17% both in real terms (adjusted for inflation). By the time Harper’s cuts are fully in place three years hence, the gap between spending on CBC and total program spending will be 37%!
