_id=0> Free CBC from Political InterferenceJian Ghomeshi, Carol Off, Peter
Mansbridge and every other journalist and creative person at the CBC will be
beholden to Stephen Harper if he succeeds in the biggest and most sinister

CBC journalists are pulling punches or program decisions are being made in
favour of political masters would be disastrous for the CBC and Canadian

friends, colleagues and neighbours.
