Complaint filed with CBC Ombudsman over Paul Wells comment on “stupid” Bernier supporters

On September 14th during a segment on CBC’s Power and Politics, Maclean’s senior writer Paul Wells stated that Maxime Bernier’s political base are “the stupidest people on Twitter” and then proceeded to have a hearty laugh at their expense.

It is completely inappropriate for the CBC to have guests on that smear a segment of Canadian voters like Wells did and to make matters even worse the show’s host did nothing to condemn his remarks except to say “No comment”.

I will expect the host, Vassy Kapelos, to issue an on-air apology and assure her viewers that CBC does not share Wells’ opinion nor welcomes such nasty comments from her guests.
