Last I heard, Brett Wilson didn't need...

...a billion dollars in taxpayer subsidies... YEARLY... to keep himself from drowning in a sea of red ink.
-- OTTAWA -- CBC has lost one the stars of a highly successful program, and according to the star, it has to do with the state broadcaster being too restrictive.

The popular entrepreneur show announced last week that W. Brett Wilson, a highly successful Calgary businessman, would not be coming back next season.

Part of the reason was the CBC's insistence that Wilson never use the words CBC or Dragon's Den during public appearances or for promoting his own work.
Wow. Just wow.

One of the few shows on CBC actually worth watching... and here comes your "public" broadcaster... once again snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
