CBC English Television is attempting to transform itself these days into what a Canadian public television network should look like. Speaking to business students at the University of Alberta March 29, VP Harold Redekopp described this transformation as "quite literally, a fight for (CBC’s) survival". He also acknowledged that one of the broadcaster’s most vocal critics is the Canadian Alliance party, which is simply reflecting the views of many of its western-based constituents.
