Mr. Speaker, we are now seeing crippling losses at CBC in Windsor, Sudbury and Thunder Bay.
While we are talking about pink slips, he should be giving them to the Conservative MPs from Quebec who will pay for his decision to blow 260 jobs yesterday in Montreal alone. These job losses were completely avoidable. All it required was his signature so that they could get a bank loan or bridge financing, and it would not have cost the taxpayer a money.
Why did the minister put an ideological vendetta ahead of the public interest of Canada?
