To those of you who have questions about the CBC carrying ads about products Marketplace investigates: CBC has Advertising Standards policies, which can be found at http://www.cbc.radio-canada.ca/docs/policies/ads/. The approval process for commercials is supervised by CBC's Advertising Standards Department, which operates independently from CBC News.
