The Globe and Mail's John Doyle writes:
"Neither the Senate standing committee report on the future of the CBC, nor Senator Art Eggleton’s minority report in response, is much use in figuring out where the CBC goes in the immediate future.
"Blunt opinions on the CBC come as part and parcel of Canadian citizenship. So a passel of grumpy senators hardly has a monopoly on ideas about the CBC’s future. The Senate report, often livid with resentment and obsessed with salaries and money, is far from a series of reliable signposts about the public broadcaster’s best possible future. . . "
