Honourable James Moore

Today I heard and read that CBC's French division has been posting a pornographic television show on one of its websites free for all to see, and that when this was brought to your attention, CBC made the decision to make it available only between midnight and 4 a.m. As a Canadian tax payer this is offensive to me in the extreme. I resent my tax dollars funding pornography. I realize that many people view pornography via the Internet, but I find it disconcerting to think that Canada's broadcaster is fueling this socially destructive phenomenon with hard-earned tax dollars. You will undoubtedly agree that such as this does not lie within the mandate of the CBC.
