"It's no secret that Howard Stern's programming is not consistent with the kind of programming you would find on CBC/Radio Canada's airwaves, but this is a Sirius Canada decision," said CBC spokesman Jason MacDonald. "Have we expressed concerns? Sure we've expressed some concerns about it." Stern's satellite radio program, which began in the United States on Jan. 9 will finally come to Sirius Canada on Monday morning. SIRIUS Canada is 40 per cent owned by the CBC, 40 per cent by Standard Radio and 20 per cent by Sirius in the United States. "Sirius Canada is a separate company," noted MacDonald. "Yes, we're partners and Sirius Canada made the decision that was right for it based on what the market demands."
