Editors' Notes

Earlier than most Canadians, the CBC has been part of our cultural heritage for decades. One wonders what these radio pioneers of the 1930s would think of our modern technology. Whatever device you choose, you can rely on this intuitive and comprehensive app to stay up-to-date on the latest national and international news.
