Progress on Eliminating Paid Speaking Gigs at CBC

March 2nd, 2015

 The February posting of Public Appearances by CBC Journalists just went up at at the Corp’s website here.

The verdict?  Paid speaking gigs, 1 event. CBC journalists speaking/moderating/panelists/hosting etc. for free at community & national events of all kinds right across the country, 58 events.  That’s the way it should be!

But I still haven’t received  an answer from CBC management to the question I asked a month ago: will Amanda Lang be paid as featured speaker at a conference of the Association of Consulting Engineers of Canada in June in Niagara Falls? It’s an organization that proudly states its goal of lobbying governments for the commercial benefit of the association’s members.

If permission for this one is “grandfathered in” … well, it will be a sad day.
