CBC Vancouver Recording Library the victim of the times and short sighted leadership

The Canadian Broadcasting Company plans to dismantle it's physical recording library and digitize the "top" 14,000 tracks.  The 100,000 or so recordings will be given away, sold at wholesale etc.  Short sighted considering the time and expense involved with the project and the danger of losing source material to mechanical flaw without original source back-up.  Management of such organizations are at times are sold down the river by business consultants who have to justify their expense and without real expertise.

Their stupidity is your gain, so here is a potential opportunity for institutions and collectors alike to obtain possibly rare recordings in a variety of physical formats.
