The Harper government is quietly seizing greater control of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, while a public advocacy group accuses the Tories of stacking the CBC's board with political allies.

Bill C-60, the Tories' budget implementation bill, includes a clause that allows the prime minister's cabinet to approve salaries, working conditions and collective bargaining positions for the CBC, The Hill Times reports.

The move, buried at the back of the 111-page bill, "appears to contradict a longstanding arm's-length relationship between the independent CBC and any government in power," the newspaper said.
