Turning off the CBC?
The future of the CBC was brought up on the election trail Saturday.
Stéphane Dion challenged Stephen Harper to "admit he dreams of shutting down the CBC."
Dion spoke of a poll the Conservatives were conducting among their own supporters asking people to rate the worthiness of CBC funding.

Heritage Minister Josée Verner was asked about the matter later in the day on Radio Canada's all news network, RDI.
She said she'd never seen the questionnaire and that her party has no plans to shut the CBC.
