.VICTORIA – A former CBC radio host hopes to take her fight for the embattled public broadcaster all the way to Parliament Hill.

Jo-Ann Roberts announced Saturday she is seeking the Green Party’s nomination in Victoria for this year’s federal election.

Roberts resigned from the CBC in December after a decade hosting Radio One’s Victoria-based “All Points West.”

Before moving to British Columbia she spent 10 years hosting CBC Radio’s morning show in Moncton, N.B.

She says she wants to see a $115-million federal funding cut to the CBC restored, as well as having a parliamentary committee to examine the public broadcaster’s mandate.

Roberts says environmental issues will be also be a major focus of her campaign should she win the nomination.
