During the height of the Charlie Hebdo news coverage, the CBC went out of its way to not run the cartoons which caused Islamic terrorists to sweep through the office killing the Paris newspaper’s staff:
CBC News has decided not to publish cartoons from Charlie Hebdo that feature the Prophet Muhammad.
“This is not a ban, and it isn’t censorship,” David Studer, CBC’s director of Journalistic Standards and Practices, said in an email on Wednesday, reminding news staff of CBC’s long-established policy.
“We are being consistent with our historic journalistic practices around this story, not because of fear, but out of respect for the beliefs and sensibilities of the mass of Muslim believers about images of the Prophet. Similarly, we wouldn’t publish cartoons likely to dismay or outrage mainstream followers of other religions.” (see here)

The hashtag #CPCJesus has been trending on Twitter in Canada after Vancouver Conservative MP Wai Young made remarks comparing the political party to Jesus. (see here)

Because no Christian will fire-bomb or storm the offices of the CBC and CP with assault rifles.
