Over a hundred people in attendance at the Rally for the CBC in Kings Square today.
The rally comes as staffing cuts are affecting 4 of the 15 member staff.
Employees being affected include two sound technicians, an office manager, and a reporter is being reassigned to only web based work.
Saint John MP Rodney Weston tells CHSJ News, people think his government is responsible for the cuts, but that's not the case.

Weston says the cuts come from dips in the advertising revenue.

Out to show their support for the Crown radio station include Senator John Wallace, Mayor Ivan Court, and a handful of city councilors.
