Saving the CBC

book cover image: Canada lives here

Wade Rowland's latest book Canada lives here: the case for public broadcasting identifies the issues crucial to the CBC' s survival and proposes carefully considered policy options. He looks at the issues of preserving public space and fostering community in an age devoted to profit making.  The CBC is Canada's most important cultural institution and this book gives you a clear understanding of what is really at stake with the threats to it's survival.  What does the CBC mean to us as a nation?  What does it mean to the individual?  I think we would be hard put to find a Canadian who has not listened to a CBC broadcast.  Would you not miss it?  A must read for every Canadian.  Learn not just about the history and evolution of the CBC but also learn why and how we need to protect our cultural heritage.
