No Home for the CBC

I was paying attention last night to the Canadian Media Guild's news feed, when this news was dropped.

CBC Announces Plans to Sell Off all Buildings in the Midst of Election Campaign

Well, well... I guess a lot of folks saw this coming, as the plans for cutting the federal share of the CBC's annual budgets have been in the works for a long time. And since as far as I know, CBC never owned the current Ottawa Broadcast Centre's home building...

This just raises two simple questions. First, is there still a need for the CBC in Canada, and if so, why? Second, will there be a CBC in Canada for much longer?
