Heritage Minister James Moore not only refused to watch the CBC softcore porn show when asked by Sun News’ reporter Kris Sims, he accused her of only bringing it to his attention as an attack on the CBC:
“I know you’re in the business of just going after the CBC” (see video here apx 3:15)
Tell me there is another Conservative MP who needs to be replaced in the next Conservative Party nomination process more than this guy?
Warning: The video of this French show Brian Lilley puts up at the beginning of the segment is very graphic. Although no nudity is shown, many sex-acts are.
Update: In Lilley’s column on this today:
As Sims was busy trying to listen in on a scrum with interim Liberal leader Bob Rae in the foyer of the House of Commons, Moore, a minister of the Crown, approached her and asked about the Sunshine girls. He equated a private company publishing pictures of women in bikinis to tax money paying for full-on sex to be posted online by the government-owned broadcaster.
Moore later told Sims that she was being used as a pawn by Quebecor CEO
Pierre Karl Peladeau to attack CBC so that the company could gain a larger share of the French-languange TV audience in Quebec.
Once that happens, Moore said, Sun News Network will be shut down: “You know that’s going to happen right?” (see here)
