A sea of blue flags emblazoned with the CBC logo – also known as the B2k34Z5IQAEYMPoCBC pizza – rolled down René-Lévesque Boulevard in Montreal Sunday afternoon.

The protests across Quebec and in Moncton were organized by CBC/Radio-Canada’s main unions for the French-language service, along with other supporters operating under the banner Tous Amis de Radio-Canada (Friends of CBC.)

Protesters assembled at Montreal’s Square-Victoria and headed to the CBC headquarters in Quebec, Maison Radio-Canada, where organizers decried the cuts to Canada’s public broadcaster.
