What People are Saying About This
"As The End of the CBC? makes abundantly clear, the time is ripe for a reassessment and renewal of Canadian public broadcasting. Taras and Waddell assess the options for the CBC in a media world that is increasingly dominated by foreign-based streaming giants. This is a bold and insightful contribution to the study of contemporary mass communications in Canada."
"The End of the CBC? is a must-read for academics, policy-makers, journalists, and members of the public concerned with how best to secure CBC's future in our fractious and fragmented media environment."
"The CBC is one of the pillars of Canada's public square, helping support our culture and political discourse. In their masterfully researched book, Taras and Waddell have exposed the forces inside and outside the corporation that are threatening to pull that pillar down. It's essential reading for anyone who cares about the future of the CBC and our country as a whole."
