CBC Lockout


More than 5,000 CBC workers - both permanent and contract staff - were locked out just after midnight this morning.

Late this afternoon I stopped by the CBC building at Front and John and talked to workers about some of the issues. Most thought the lockout would last anywhere from 6 weeks to 5 months.
