Mr. Speaker, the parliamentary secretary just does not get it. CBC/Radio-Canada has had to make cuts because the Conservatives have cut its funding. What is happening in Sherbrooke is not the same as what is happening in Montreal. If a one-hour local newscast is cut by 30 minutes, the math is simple, our region's voice is being cut in half. CBC/Radio-Canada is there to keep us informed, and it belongs to all of us.
Will the minister ever understand that the people of the Eastern Townships, like all Canadians, care deeply about their local news?
