After reading this article titled “MUHC ordered to cancel two-year contract with Montreal PR agency”:
Quebec’s Health Minister Gaétan Barrette says hiring an expensive public relations firm is no way to fix the image of the McGill University Health Centre.
Barrette spoke to CBC News Friday morning about an order he gave the MUHC earlier this week to cancel the remainder of its $600,000 contract with the Montreal PR firm Jonathan Goldbloom and Associates, or JGA. (see here)
I did a quick Google search of owner Jonathan Goldbloom and discovered a couple very interesting details that the CBC didn’t include in their story:
1) son of Victor Goldbloom who was a minister in the Robert BourassaLiberal government
2) brother of Michael Goldbloom who was the former publisher of the Toronto Star and Montreal Gazette
But the real bombshell:
3) current candidate for the Liberal Party of Canada (see here)
Tell me how a dumb guy like me can find all this out in a couple minutes yet a professional reporter working at the CBC apparently couldn’t.
