STATEMENT BY MICHAEL MOORE ON THE CBC LOCKOUT

Source: Michael Moore.Com

Oscar-winning filmmaker and best-selling author Michael Moore issued the following statement today on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's decision to air "Bowling for Columbine" while in the midst of a lockout:

"CBC has locked out its union workers, an action that is abhorrent to all who believe in the rights of people to collectively bargain. Why the great and honorable CBC is behaving like an American corporation is beyond me.

The CBC is planning to show my film, "Bowling for Columbine," this Sunday evening. I do not want my film being broadcast on the network unless it is willing to let its own workers back in to work and promises to bargain with them in good faith. That is the historical tradition of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and I expect no less than for them to continue this tradition of respecting its workers and their union."
