On November 7, 2023 in Montreal, CEO Catherine Tait of Canada’s national broadcaster, the CBC, gave a speech on the threats to the CBC’s “independent journalism”.
During her presentation, Yves Engler, John Philpot and I called Ms. Tait out for the CBC’s abject failure to tell the truth about Israel’s brazen genocide in Gaza.
In the first video below, I told Tait that the key to saving the CBC is fearless commitment to truth-telling, and that the CBC has no business calling itself “independent journalism” if it lacks the courage and integrity to report the truth about Israel’s genocide in Gaza.
In the second video below, Yves Engler criticizes Tait for the CBC’s policy of forbidding use of the term “Palestine”.
Unfortunately, we have no video of John Philpot’s intervention because, the moment John started speaking, security guards grabbed his cell phone.
