Canadian Broadcasting Corporation holdings

Graham Spry Building, 250 Lanark Avenue in Westboro Ottawa.

     April 19, 1991-Order-in-Council
     Authority for the CBC to renew a lease to Unitel Communications-CBC Warehouse, 2555 Douglas Road, Burnaby, British Columbia.
 In 2002 the Crown corporation divested the Graham Spry Building at 250 Lanark Avenue in Westboro, Ottawa. The parking lot at the CBC Headquarters in Vancouver was sold to a developer; taxpayers of Canada paid for the construction of an underground parking lot at CBC Headquarters in Vancouver. The CBC is a wonderful institution---I grew up watching "Hockey Night in Canada"; "Don Messer's Jubilee"; Juliette and live coverage of Royal Tours. I am so fed up with the directors of this Crown corporation who cannot keep their hands off the real estate; the TV and radio archives; 600 transmission towers; one thousand transmitters; the 100,000 vinyl records that were probably given to major record companies in New York City; furniture from television programs; costumes...
