"For us, that's a goal. That's a touchdown," Harrington told the audience gathered at the CBC's Toronto Broadcast Centre. Through Sunday, May 19, CBC stars like him are appearing in discussions open to the public. (Livestream them all at CBC Live.)
As Harrington and Johnson said during their hour-long conversation, Marketplace exists to serve Canadians like those in the audience. "Our focus is to expose wrongdoing," Johnson said at one point during the talk. But the investigative consumer affairs show is completely unique in North America. No other show like it currently exists on the air. "CBC's the only place where it can and will exist," Harrington said at the top of the discussion.
