The news CBC missed on Wednesday

The lockout by CBC means listeners in New Brunswick won't hear about a different labour dispute that's set to begin on Thursday.
About 300 Home support workers with the Red Cross in northern New Brunswick are to go on strike at 9 a.m. Thursday.
Undoubtedly, some of the seniors and others who stand to be affected by this are CBC listeners, including many in the coverage area of the Fredericton signal.
But they won't hear about this potential change affecting their life on CBC.
The news now being offered by CBC management doesn't have time for such minor annoyances.
But you can be sure the BBC will keep you on to keep you on top of the situation in the Gaza strip.
One has to wonder how relevant the Red Cross clients of northern New Brunswick think that story is to their life.

Editor's note: The CBC's lack of commitment to news coverage during its lockout of more than 5,000 loyal employees is not going unnoticed. Read what others are saying here.
