Petition To The CBC Ombudsman

From SoCon or Bust blog:
To: CBC Ombudsman, Kirk Lapointe
Dear Mr. LaPointe,

On May 12, during the CBC’s nightly program “The National”, CBC reporter Laurie Graham reported that 5,000 people attended the March for Life on Parliament Hill. CBC’s online article repeated the falsehood which can be read here:
The reported number was a gross distortion of the truth, since the real number of participants exceeded over 15,000, as the analysis in this blog post makes evident:
As you can easily see, the CBC’s reporting is a gross misrepresentation of reality, and it once again calls into question the political slant of the CBC in not reporting the facts.
Sign the petition. It's about time we demand the CBC to be honest in its reporting.

P.S. Apparently the government is preparing a new budget instead of the one that the opposition decided not to support. It should be unveiled in June. Hopefully they'll have the guts not to offer any extra funding to the CBC.
