OTTAWA, ON Nov. 2, 2012 – The CBC Radio One weekly program “Day 6” is having a contest called “Deep Sixed” in which people can vote for or against the elimination of several things, including Facebook, maple syrup, Bluefin tuna, the Catholic Church and “white people.” This was obviously intended as a joke, but we challenged why they would include the Church in a satirical contest of this kind. We encouraged our members to contact them about this bizarre choice, and suggested that “CBC funding” might be a better option! Following our protest, program managers said they had decided to remove the Church from the list, replacing it with a discussion of various countries’ economic problems.
