SYDNEY — A community rally is to be held to protest job cuts at CBC Cape Breton.
New Dawn Enterprises will host the event Friday at noon at the Civic Centre boardwalk on the Esplanade in Sydney.
Earlier this month, the local station lost one of its four reporters with Ottawa’s $130-million slashing of the public broadcaster’s budget.
Meanwhile, a staff of over 100 in the 1980s has been reduced to 12 today.
Organizers say that in the event of rain, the rally will be moved inside.
