Canwest Global Communications Corp announced on February 5, 2009 that it will be conducting a strategic review of its E stations. Included in this review is CHCH news.  

It has been suggested that the options are to sell either all 5 stations, rebrand some of the channels, or possibly even close some or all of these channels.

They have stated that CHCH may be sold off, or possibly closed down if a suitable decision can not be found. “These stations have proud histories of serving their communities with strong independent voices,’’ Canwest President and CEO Leonard Asper said. “However, as they are currently configured, these stations are not core to our television operations going forward.”

As people of Hamilton, Halton and Niagara regions, we can not afford to lose the precious community service that is CHCH news.

By signing this petition I support the CHCH employee initiative to secure the rights of broadcast licence from the CRTC, in order to create a local and community driven entity.
