OTTAWA – Our Public Airwaves, a public broadcasting advocacy group, is calling for an end to the lockout of CBC workers. See the OPA’s latest message below and go to their site to send a letter to the prime minister.
Dear Friends and Supporters,
The CBC is in crisis and we’ve got to act NOW to help end the devastating lockout and get the 5,500 members of the Canadian Media Guild back to work!
Our Public Airwaves, an advocacy group for public broadcasting, has organized the Save OUR CBC! campaign to put pressure on the prime minister to take action. “This lockout won’t end until we can make Paul Martin understand that we’re holding him personally responsible” says Arthur Lewis, OPA’s executive director.
OPA is asking for the support of CUPE members in sending letters to Martin. A prepared text to which you can add your own personal comments is available on the campaign website at: www.OurCBC.ca
In addition to supporting the campaign yourself, you can help by spreading the word to everyone you know. Please ask them to visit www.OurCBC.ca and send a message to the prime minister. To get the government to act, we have to mobilize every single Canadian who cares about the CBC.
