Quite by accident, I discover the CBC is on strike.
An endless stream of mediocre music fills the radio network airwaves, interrupted by an occasional management voice and moldy oldies like This Is Art. Can Canada keep its begonias alive without the Monday gardening phone-in? Find a way, I say.
Since most agree the CBC's best days are behind it, why not just repeat every show the network has ever broadcast? And never make a new one?
This serves two purposes.
1. A continuing drizzle of public sector ear drool for a loyal, grumpy, shrinking audience of hearing aids.
2. A guaranteed sunset clause for taxpayers. After the CBC exhausts 50 years of archives, let the ship sink slowly in the west.
Is everybody happy?
