Andrew Scheer says he would axe CBC News!

“I think taxpayers are very frustrated by how much the CBC costs,” Scheer said in an interview with Hamilton Community News reported on iPolitics. 
“I don’t know why this government is in the news business in this day and age with so many platforms with so many ways to disseminate information,” he told the paper, adding that,  the government has a “glaring” conflict operating the CBC.
Scheer spoke to about 35 members of the Macdonald-Cartier Club at Carmen’s C Hotel. Scheer is the latest candidate to reveal his distaste for the public broadcaster — a favourite theme of the Conservative base.
