The undersigned journalists have become alarmed at the precipitous decline of documentaries in the CBC-TV schedule, which has occurred not just for financial reasons, but because of programming priorities over many years. Now there are plans to shut down in-house production of feature documentaries. CBC Television, to be true to its core mandate, needs more long-form journalism and legacy programming -- not less.

|Book launch: A Line in the Tarsands|
Join contributors, an editor, and Line 9 activists for a celebration of A Line in the Tar Sands: Struggles for Environmental Justice.
Tar sands "development" comes with an enormous environmental and human cost. But tar sands opponents -- fighting a powerful international industry -- are likened to terrorists; government environmental scientists are muzzled; and public hearings are concealed and rushed.
Yet, despite the formidable political and economic power behind the tar sands, many opponents are actively building international networks of resistance, challenging pipeline plans while resisting threats to indigenous sovereignty and democratic participation.
