Mr. Speaker, this petition comes to me from Calgary, Alberta.
The petitioners want fundamental assurance from the House and from the government for the future of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation/Radio-Canada. It is a public broadcaster as it does have a mandate to provide information across the country from coast to coast to coast.
The petitioners want the government to help provide the funding to help fulfill the mandate of CBC/Radio-Canada. It is a great institution and, essentially, the cultural crossroads of this country as to who we are, our identity and where we are going to be in the future.
