A Bloomberg News article about the dismal state of Canada's newspaper industry ends with the following paragraph, including a quote from Phillip Crawley, the publisher of the Globe and Mail:
Another element unique to Canada is the presence of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, which received about C$1.04 billion in government funding in the fiscal year ended March 2015.
"I resent the fact that I'm competing with something I'm paying for with my own taxpayer dollars," Crawley said.
This is an excellent point, but it is, alas, not "unique to Canada." Britain has the BBC, and the United States has NPR and PBS, which use my tax dollars to compete with me.
