Support the CBC: Great Event at a Great Place

The Lion d'or, one of Montreal's greatest halls, will be the scene this evening of a rally in support of the CBC. 

Canada has been defined by its public broadcaster for decades, but it is under attack from the Stephen Harper governement.  Supposedly, it will get stable financing but successive budget cuts under one pretext or another have undercut its resources.

So the local NDP riding association in which the Maison Radio Canada sits is organizing a rally/show in support of the CBC/Radio Canada.  Scheduled to begin at  6 p.m. this evening, it is free and open to the public. Here's the Facebook event page:.
