About Go Public

Been wronged and want results? Want to hold the powers that be accountable? Go Public wants to hear from you.

We hold powers that be accountable

CBC British Columbia launched Go Public in October of 2007.

You can see and hear the segment every week on CBC News: VancouverThe NationalCBC News Network, CBC Radio and CBC.ca.

We don't make the news – you do.

All of our story ideas come from people who contact us. Many of those people also appear prominently in the stories themselves.

If your story is one we can tackle and it's in the public interest, we will take it on. We get to the bottom of the problem and go after who should be held responsible.

Have a story you think we should tell? Write to us – gopublic@cbc.ca
