In November 2005, the CBC News Weather Centre was established to cover local and international weather, using in part data provided by Environment Canada.
Claire Martin was hired to serve as the primary face of the Weather Centre.
It works closely with, but is separate from, Radio-Canada Info, the news operations of the French-language Radio-Canada networks.
The first CBC newscast was a bilingual radio report on 2 November 1936.
In April 2010, the Conservatives accused pollster Frank Graves of giving partisan advice to the Liberal Party of Canada, noting his donations to the party since 2003.
In November 2014, citing difficulties implementing this new system, CBC announced a one-year trial content sharing partnership with The Weather Network, the privately owned cable specialty channel, which went into effect on December 8.However, the CBC continued to program NWI, with much of its programming simulcast on the domestic Newsworld service.
