Conservative leadership candidate Andrew Scheer suggested that if he were to become prime minister, he would axe the news division of CBC.

"I think taxpayers are very frustrated by how much the CBC costs," Scheer said in an interview with Hamilton Community News.

"I don't know why this government is in the news business in this day and age with so many platforms with so many ways to disseminate information," he told the paper, adding that, the government has a "glaring" conflict operating the CBC.
