CBC’s Mark Kelley acting as moderator at mining convention


The brouhaha over Peter Mansbridge giving a speech at an oil conference (see here) hasn’t stopped Mark Kelley from moderating in Vancouver at the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum convention (see here).

As a member of CBC’s The Fifth Estate (see here) the list of exhibitors Kelley would be in a conflict of interest if he reported on any of them is massive (see here) as I’ll safely assume he isn’t doing this for free.


Senators say CBC hiding true salaries of employees like Peter Mansbridge


No one believes that CBC’s Peter Mansbridge is only making up to $80,500 and that Jian Ghomeshi and Amanda Lang are being paid between $60,844.32 and $77,390.42:

Contacted Tuesday, Mansbridge declined to comment on his income from the publicly funded CBC, saying “it’s personal information.” (see here)

I’m pretty sure all the CBC journos about to be laid-off would like to know though.

Sun’s Lilley exposes CBC’s story on RCMP banning Swiss Arms rifle

The CBC ran a story yesterday which accused Public Safety Minister Steve Blaney of lying about being unaware of the RCMP banning the Swiss Arms Classic Green rifle:

Newly obtained documents show Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney was informed more than once and long in advance that the RCMP was likely going to reclassify and ban a controversial semi-automatic rifle. (see here)

And like a sucker, I fell for it without investigating first.

I mean, for the RCMP and CBC to lie about something like this would be unthinkable right? But as Sun News’ Brian Lilley pointed out on his segment, you can never ever trust the CBC (see video here).

If what Lilley is saying proves to be true, RCMP Commission Bob Paulson must immediately resign.

Also: I’ve asked CBC’s Allison Crawford if she is standing by her story and will update is she responds.
