Just watching QP.

Bev Oda announced that after gradually losing the confidence of Canada's new government, the CBC Chairman Guy Fournier has 'voluntarily' resigned.

CBC chairman resigns after controversial comments

quote:
Fournier, 75, became the target of anger and criticism in recent days after falsely claiming in a French-language magazine article that Lebanon permits bestiality, and for granting a lengthy interview on the joys of bowel movements.
...
Oda told the Commons that Fournier, who was appointed by the previous Liberal regime to a five-year term last September, "has increasingly lost the confidence of Canada's new government."

The minister said she received Fournier's "voluntary resignation" effective immediately.

My hibrow comment for the day:

CBC managment suck. Fire the lot of them.
Lets see some real programming again. Its not like Canada is an an entertainment and media wasteland. CBC is dying on the vine.

That Fournier guy sounds like a real piece of work. Let alone a waste of money, time and energy.
