Once again I find myself wondering about CBC's budget priorities. This week Peter Mansbridge will be hosting The National from Khandahar in Afghanistan. Frankly there is no need for this. I can only imagine how much this kind of thing costs, but its not hard to guess that Mansbridge's various on location broadcasts each year probably end up costing hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not more. This is money that would be better spent on hiring more reporters, cameramen and so on. Let the foreign correspondants do their job, and keep Mansbridge in Toronto where he belongs.
