The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) is a federal crown organization, that is dependent on Canadian tax dollars for funding. Currently, the CBC is receiving $675 million tax borrowed money annually with $150 million increase per year over five years. Consequently, the CBC is part of the socialist state that is helping to cause the looming financial crisis.
The National Citizens Alliance believes that the CBC should be sold off to the highest bidder because the broadcaster is a biased outlet for the federal government, and public corporations generally are a fiscally inefficient and irresponsible use of Canadian tax dollars. In addition, the Canadian Radio-Television Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) establishes regulations for Canadian content on both public and private radio and television.
The National Citizens Alliance supports the following:
● Selling off the Canadian Broadcast Corporation to the highest bidder within 6-months period of forming government

The CBC Privatization policy statement requires a vote of the NCA membership to be adopted. A minimum 70 percent voting membership must support the policy and with a 50 percent quorum of voting membership as per the NCA Constitution (2014).
The NCA welcomes feedback on its policies. Please send policy feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org
* CBC Censorship
CBC blocked a National Citizens Alliance video on youtube that exposes misinformation and spin from the CBC and other media outlets in their reporting of the Red Deer Protest 2017.
The Canadian tax payers subsidy the CBC, and yet the CBC is censoring Canadian tax payers.
Further, the National Citizens Alliance was within its full “fair use” rights to use excerpts from a CBC broadcast. We filed a dispute with youtube under fair use:
