John was kind enough to email me links to this and this that try to explain the bizarre methods used to fund our national broadcaster. According to these sources (The Globe and Mail is quoted in the links) the CBC will get about $928 million which doesn't include funding from a whole host of other sources.
It's sad really. When was the last time you saw a Canadian program that didn't include 30 seconds worth of credits at the end showing how generous our govenment is? Two examples I can give are Corner Gas (which airs on CTV) and the Montreal Comedy Festival. Both of these could easily stand on their own and yet they both receive wads of my tax dollars. Sad. Sad. Sad.
If that stuff doesn't make your head spin... nothing will.
