Request - 25 April 2020[edit]

After seeing a CTV userbox, I thought that there needs to be one for CBC. Picture would be File:CBC Logo 1992-Present.svg, and text would say "This user watches CBC." The text can be modified to be local when you put a callsign in the code, for example if you put CBLT in the code the text would be modified to say "This user watches CBC Toronto."
