My complaint to the CBC Ombudsman on panelist calling Lindsay Shepherd a “young crying white girl”

Esther Enkin, CBC Ombudsman

On Dec 17 during a segment of CBC’s political show Sunday Scrum about who were the newsmakers of the year, panelists Vicky Mochoma called Lindsay Shepherd a “young crying white girl” and dismissed her fight for university freedoms because “she leans hard right” politically.

Neither race, gender, age nor political affiliation has anything to do with the issue at hand yet Mochoma was allowed to attack Shepherd without even being confronted by the CBC host John Northcott.

There is no doubt had a panelist used the description “young crying black girl” the reaction would have been immediate and severe, including an on-air apology and removal from any further CBC panels. Neither of these has happened in this case.

Mochoma’s appearances on the CBC must end, a public and personal apology to Lindsay Shepherd be issued, the show’s host explain why he remained silent after Mochoma used this racist term and the CBC must clarify to all employees and panelists that this type of on-air commentary will not be tolerated in the future.

I await your response.

CBC panellist calls Lindsay Shepherd a “crying white girl”

From the non-reactions of the other two media panellists (Ottawa Citizen’s Susan Riley and Globe and Mail’s John Ibbitson) as well as the host John Northcott, it’s apparently perfectly acceptable to use white-racism in order to smear someone on CBC News as Metro News’ Vicky Mochama did.

You can watch her call university free speech activist Lindsay Shepherd a “crying white girl” and dismiss her as someone who “leans hard right” politically on CBC’s political show Sunday Scrum at approximately the 7:10 mark

There’s absolutely no way the CBC would allow anyone to use such a racist label to describe someone non-white and would be immediately fired for doing so.

I will be filing a complaint with the CBC ombudsman and update after I receive a response.

 

 

Trudeau cabinet minister tweets photo meeting with criminal organisation representative

Less than a week after Liberal environment minister Catherine McKenna threw one of her staffers under the bus for “saluting” the murderous regime in Syria (see here) McKenna posted a photo from her personal Twitter account meeting with a Greenpeace official:

Somehow McKenna thinks it’s ok for Canada’s government to tout a group that consistently breaks Canada’s laws, including gaining access to the Parliament buildings in Ottawa:

 

What other convicted criminals do the Liberals associate with that we don’t know about?

Business Development Bank of Canada president must resign after publicly defending Liberal finance minister

The Business Development Bank of Canada is a non-partisan crown corporation that should never involve itself in political partisanship yet during this Star fluff piece on scandal-ridden Liberal finance minister Bill Morneau, the president and CEO Michael Denham did just that:

“If there’s one thing that has really made me mad in all this is that Bill is pure in terms of his ethics and his integrity,” says his closest friend, Michael Denham, 53, president and CEO of the Business Development Bank of Canada, an arm’s-length Crown corporation.

“It’s one thing to be attacked on policy.That’s fair game . . . But to be attacked so salaciously on character is what’s been eating away at me,” adds Denham, who’s known Morneau since they were students at the London School of Economics in the late ’80s. (see here)

Conservative leader Andrew Scheer must now demand Denham’s resignation in order to maintain the integrity of the Business Development Bank of Canada and also send a message to other Liberal bureaucrats and cronies that this type of behaviour will not be tolerated.

Trudeau’s Liberal government “salutes” the murderous Syrian regime

Liberal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna actually sent this tweet out celebrating the government of Bashar al-Assad:

Bashar al-Assad is a dictator who has committed war crimes and crimes against humanity but whatevs, Paris Agreement!!

Update: McKenna blames a staffer for the tweet:

“Clearly a mistake was made from my Dept twitter.” (see here)

Now, what exactly is a “Dept twitter”?
