Mr. Speaker, if the member had listened to the minister's answers to questions, he might wish to pose a different one.
One has to understand and respect that CBC has an arm's length relationship with the government. It would be rather untoward to dictate how it is managed.
Having said that, we and I believe CBC are fully aware of its mandate as it is prescribed by law. I would invite the member to refer to section 3.1 of the Broadcasting Act and he will have his answer.
