The head of the CBC is hitting back at Conservative Leader Stephen Harper over the national broadcaster's funding. Harper told a private radio station in Quebec that the CBC's budget crunch isn't due to government cuts, but because of its low ratings.

(Lacroix says Canada must look to other European countries for ideas on how to fund public broadcasting.)
