CBC is a government funded channel so really the government is restricting what they want you to view.
What I'm saying is that there is by no means enough information to attempt to draw a logical assumption to such a degree.

Any website/video I can't see is due to the country of origin restricting it.
As your country may be infridging on its distribution
and thus CBC restricts it from being viewed in your country. Again, not enough information to draw a conclusion to that magnitude.
And with, as you state, a lack of online protection of its distribution
then no wonder it is blocked. It is indeed not Canada restricting the freedom of the individual. But again, that is iff there is absolutely no laws of online distribution in your country.Edited by Domino - 6/20/11 at 8:56am
