CBC Complains To Chinese Ambassador After Broadcaster’s Websites Blocked

From CBC News:

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has formally complained to China’s ambassador to Canada about the continued blocking of the broadcaster’s websites in China.

CBC president Hubert T. Lacroix outlined his concerns in a letter to Ambassador Lu Shumin on Friday.

Access in China to CBC’s French-language website Radio-Canada.ca has been blocked for six months, while access to the English site CBC.ca has been cut off since January, Lacroix said.

“I am writing to request that you make formal and immediate enquiries as to why the sites have been blocked, and that you take steps to ensure that this policy is reversed,” Lacroix said in the letter.
