Is The NHL Responsible For The CBC Lockout

from cbcunlocked.ca,
A new story line is being proposed as people try to make sense of what is happening at Canada's public broadcaster. Synopsis: The CBC lockout is paying for the NHL lockout. The theory: the CBC can recoup the millions of dollars in ad revenue it lost while there was no Hockey Night in Canada, by locking out 5,500 employees and saving the associated wages and costs. One observer who's heard the theory is Ian Morrison, who speaks for Friends of Canadian Broadcasting, a group that advocates more and better Canadian content and keeps an eagle eye on the CBC. It is "at the very least plausible," he says, that the employee lockout will cover the CBC's NHL-lockout losses. "People I trust have told me the corporation is saving in the range of $3 million to $4 million a week," he says.
