The divided viewership makes it less appealing for CBC to show the habs nationally, especially since their piece of the pie is not as large as RDS.

But yeah, if you combine the two networks, you can make a very strong case for the habs having the larger fanbase.
Piece of the pie ? As in attendance ? In the example used CBC had almost double that of RDS.
