CBC/Radio Canada Announces New Commitment to Diversity

.
.

At the Banff World Media Festival today, CBC/Radio-Canada announced a new commitment to diversity for all English and French-language commissioned programs across scripted and factual genres. The public broadcaster made this announcement in the context of its new strategic plan, “Your Stories Taken to Heart,” which prioritizes giving underrepresented Canadians greater opportunities to build their skills, experience and relationships in the industry.

By 2025, CBC/Radio-Canada aims to ensure that at least one of the key creatives in all scripted and factual commissioned programs will be held by a person from a diverse background. Key creatives include producer, director, writer, showrunner and lead performer.

In cases where the talent pipeline may not be as robust, the public broadcaster will expect a commitment from independent producers to mentor or train a diverse person in one of the key creative roles of a greenlit production. For the purposes of this commitment, a diverse person includes members of visible minorities, Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities and members of the LGBTQ2+ community.

This year, CBC/Radio-Canada surpassed its goal of gender parity across its commissioned programs. During the 2018/19 broadcast year across all original English and French shows, the public broadcaster supported 62% female-led projects where the majority of the key creative roles of producer, director, writer and showrunner were held by women.

“During the 2018/19 broadcast year across all original English and French shows, the public broadcaster supported 62% female-led projects where the majority of the key creative roles of producer, director, writer and showrunner were held by women.”

Reading between the lines, now that it is CONFIRMED that women dominate the CBC, can we see a return of men?

I hardly think so. What we WILL see are these women, if they are white, going the same way as the white men that were pushed out of this taxpayer funded free-for-all that has long since failed to represent the demographics of the people that pay taxes to support it.

Watch for a purge of white women, and a total promotion of visible minority women (not men) with unpronounceable names and *gasp* thick foreign accents.

Watch, also, a further collapse of ratings for their “news” and public affairs programs since viewers will no longer think they are viewing Canadian programming since the presenters no longer even try to integrate or appeal to Canadian viewers of all races, genders and sexual orientation.

We may as well be watching programming from India or Africa, and thanks to Satellite and Internet, we can.

oh brother,

Agreed, I could have written pretty well the same stuff.

The CBC has no imperative to be a merit based entity. The tax payer is on the hook for it. Virtue signaling has as noted already 62% female led projects. The only men who will get any further in that nut house will be homosexuals.

White women will be next to go and as sad as that sounds one can’t cry too much for them, for its women and mostly white virtue signalling who have brought and brings all this virtue signaling p.c. crap upon us in our “oh look at how progressive Canada is culturally.”

More and more CBC programing will be blah, SJW, P.C. dreck. Ratings will go into the toilet but who cares at CBC with its $1.6B yearly in free to CBC taxpayer money.

When seniority and merit are trumped by some sort of quota system you end up with a product that is inferior. Look at ah umahumahums gender cabinet or the NDPs new Leader.

Am I correct to assume that in the world of today “Diversity” is more than likely the hiring of a token number of “Pudgy Middle Aged White Guys” ?
