Ludicrous Lacroix

Appears President Hubert is taking the advice of Talking Heads and stopped making sense. Speaking in Vancouver, he offered up some remarkable statements … “I hear a lot of people pining for the supposed golden age of CBC/Radio-Canada, an age when everything we did was relevant, compelling and Canadian,” Lacroix said. “Here is the reality: […]

Trippin with Hubert

Ladies and Gentlemen, It’s always a pleasure to come out to beautiful Vancouver. I’m a drug user and, amongst all of the great things your city has to offer, I must tell you that you have one of the best cities in the country in which to get high. But I did not come to […]

Big Issues, Small Explanations

Melissa’s report is a very superficial review of of both sides of the current controversy.

That blog gave us 343 words. Meanwhile, I printed out and read all 56 pages […]

Looking ahead to May

May 1, 2009 – It’s been a pretty interesting week (understatement!), so I thought I’d drop you a quick line. CBC/Radio-Canada had two important appearances this week: mine before the Heritage Committee on Monday and another by Steven Guiton, Richard Stursberg, Sylvain Lafrance, Louis Lalande, François Conway and Bev Kirshenblatt before the CRTC on Wednesday. […]
