ACTRA Supports the CBC


ACTRA Colour Large






March 10, 2015

Dear friends,

ACTRA is thrilled that Canadians are speaking up to champion and support our CBC. ACTRA members including R.H. Thomson, Peter Keleghan, Candy Palmater, Gordon Pinsent; musician Greg Keelor of Blue Rodeo; and astronaut Chris Hadfield are showing their support.

Public funding is critical to the CBC. It is crucial that the government commits to renewed and increased long-term funding of high-quality content at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

What’s next? It’s an election year so please encourage your family and friends to stand up for the CBC. Let our MPs know that we demand their support for our public broadcaster.

Join the roster of great Canadians including Sarah Slean, Peter Keleghan, Gordon Pinsent and Chris Hadfield (pictured here) to support our CBC on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtags ‪#‎LoveCBC‬ and ‪#‎ChampionCBC‬.

The CBC must be given the resources they need to flourish, to create jobs and to be a global leader in the creation of original Canadian content for broadcast around the world and on all platforms.

In solidarity,

Ferne Signature




Ferne Downey
ACTRA National President
