Here’s the latest reply from CBC on the RSS issue:
As previously explained by the customer support representant, CBC does not allow external use of our RSS or XML files. This is a very strict policy to ensure full control by the corporation over the editorial content and branding. If I do understand your interest for a RSS feed, I have the regret to notify you that this service is not available for public use.
This leads me to understand that there actually are RSS and XML files somewhere inside the CBC; they’re just not letting them leak outside.
I can’t claim to understand their “very strict policy to ensure full control by the corporation over the editorial content and branding.”
Probably time to take this higher.
