Video: CBC At Issue panellist Bruce Anderson’s daughter works for Trudeau


During the telecast of last night’s At Issue segment, CBC host Peter Mansbridge disclosed at the request of Bruce Anderson that his daughter works for Liberal leader Justin Trudeau (watch here 2:30 mark).

Anderson does not elaborate in what capacity his daughter works for Trudeau but regardless it is a huge conflict on interest as not only does he appear on the CBC as a political expert, Anderson is Chairman of the polling company Abacus Data and part-owner with his brothers of the news aggregate National Newswatch.

I’ve asked Anderson about this conflict and will update if he replies.
