Yes, I'm also having problems with the built-in ad-block on cbc.ca.
On the default page, and links directly off of it, it appears to block all the useful content on the site--the articles.
When I go to an article directly from a link from another site, like https://www.cbc.ca/news/entertainment/jung-arrest-korea-kpop-scandal-1.5065524, the page never loads. The built-in ad block just keeps counting up (into the thousands), and the page can never load. This just started a couple days ago.
