Will be interesting to see how this unfolds.  [cynical mode on]  The CBSC link comes across as Onion-ish.  The stats say that Sun News isn't getting 4100 viewers most of the time, yet we are to believe that that many people took the time to make a complaint?  Do we know who these complainants are?  Is it possible to freep the CSBC?  As John Snobelen used to say "create a [s[tempest in a teapotcrisis."  If there's anything that Sun News needs it's a controversy/reaction/attention....anything to attempt to elevate it from the depths of the moribund.[/cynical mode off]

There are a lot of dance fans and many of them read John Doyle. Plus there is a Facebook group.

I just listened to a clip of Charles Adler and Krista Erickson talking about the 22 Minutes satire of Krista and Margaret Atwood. Wow, what boring people! Neither of the two could work up any emotion or even fake some emotion, and their lack of humour is stultifying.  :p
 
Here's the 22 Minutes clip which is a heck of a lot funnier than the Sun bores:

Robert makes a good argument for funding the CBC:

As far as I'm concerned, watching the CBC drive conservatives bonkers is well worth the money it costs us.

Sun News is applying to CRTC for mandatory carriage in April, arguing "its signal must be broadcast into every Canadian home if it is ever going to recover from losses of $17-million a year ."

Pleading that Sun News is "the strongest voice for the pro-life cause in Canada", it is asking LifeSite for lobbying help with its petition to the CRTC

So they're admitting that they're doing advocacy. Can you imagine the uproar that would follow if any other broadcast operation that claimed to be doing news also claimed to be "a strong voice for reproductive choice?"

Exactly but the line between news and opinion/advocacy is very blurry at SunNews at the best of times. They do not differentiate.

However it is one thing for SunNews to give Campaign Life Coalition their own spot every Monday and have a few of their on air 'personalities' like Michael Coren and Brian Lilley and Charles Adler do anti-choice 'editorials', but quite another for the company VP to ask LifeSite to help them get taxpayers dollars for advocacy.

Quote
Teneycke told LifeSiteNews. “In our case the public comment period closes on February 20th.  We need to demonstrate a groundswell of support for Sun News, and the readers of LifeSiteNews can help.”


David Climenhaga at Alberta Diary advises :
Quote
readers who wish to make a submission to the national broadcast regulator about the Sun News Network application to send it by Feb. 20 to send a letter citing reference number 2012-0687-1 to CRTC, Ottawa, Ont., K1A 0N2. The letter should start or end with either “I request to appear at the public hearing” or “I do not want to appear at the public hearing.”

Or submit comment directly to CRTC : http://crtc.gc.ca/eng/archive/2013/2013-19.htm#10

Sun News 2012-0687-1 is 2/3 way down How to Submit page.
