Simmer down people.

I don't think that anyone was trying to establish that these particular tapes originated at the CBC, or that they were stolen.  I personally, was just trying to voice an issue that I am familiar with regarding provenance and ownership.   
Whether or not you check the tapes for identifying markings, or decide to follow up with CBC, isn't my concern.  But, I will say - just because someone gave you a copy of something, doesn't mean you own the intellectual content, even if you have the only remaining copy in existence.

I don't think they were ever established as CBC recordings. The only connection is that Larry Lake was a long time CBC producer and I mentioned that I have many recordings that are in the same category from CBC, (I didn't steal them).
