A 10% cut while costs are always rising is not insignificant, especially when you consider that CBC was at the forefront of providing digital news and media to Canadians during this time. Also take into account that CBC lost major ad revenue (anywhere from 50 to 175 million) when they lost the NHL contract in 2013.
You might be surprised at how much it costs to produce a single episode for television. Now consider that CBC's mandate is to provide content for all Canadians in English and French on Radio and Television. It also provides streaming music and other digital content for free to Canadians.
I won't even touch the 10 or 12 trucks comment because it goes beyond hyperbole. I know enough people who worked at CBC to know that local news programming has been slashed to the point where it is almost impossible to deliver any kind of quality news daily.
As for non-news ratings, if you want more Big Brother and Real Housewives in your TV menu, have at it. I'm glad there is programming for thinking people.
I'll repeat that both sides of the political spectrum are complaining about CBC bias, so maybe your problem isn't with the CBC.
