Thanks for pointing this out. I’ve Adblocked away all the CBC ads, so I’d never otherwise notice.

What’s the story Peter? CBC accepts ads, the military advertises… and now the military is advertising on CBC.

I think it’s good that the CBC doesn’t air “advocacy ads.” I think the Armed Forces ad is an “advocacy ad.” I don’t think the Government should be able to run ads that say “joining the army is great” on news pages that discuss what the army is doing.
