Liberal Pick To Run CBC Currently Lives In New York

Catherine Tait – who currently lives outside of Canada – will become CBC president.

The Trudeau government has chosen Catherine Tait to become the next president of the CBC & Radio Canada.

According to the CP, “Tait, 60, has worked in the film and television business in Canada and the United States for more than 30 years, including time at Telefilm Canada and as a former president of Salter Street Films, which produced a CBC mainstay, “This Hour Has 22 Minutes.”‘

The report notes that Tait “lives in New York” and she is currently the head of Duopoly, a producer of “digital, television, and film content.”

The announcement of Tait’s appointment was made by Heritage Minister Melanie Joly. Tait is a Canadian, and will be the first woman in that role.

While Tait will presumably live in Canada while serving as CBC president, many will wonder why the Trudeau government was unable to find someone who actually is living in Canada to fill that position.

During their time in office, the Trudeau Liberals are implementing plans to increase CBC funding by nearly $700 million during a five year period, raising concerns about how the organization can remain objective – particularly at election time – when they have a financial interest in seeing a specific political party get elected.

First question should be how much she has donated to the Liberal Party or to the Trudeau Foundation?

Trudeau’s decision never make sense. It is all part of his post-national state. His idea is that all the people who run Canada will not be from here or will have dual citizenship, therefore no loyalty to Canada. An idiotic decision by an idiot. I know of people who have manager in other cities than they are or other country where they are, and it is a challenge for them to get any decisions or information.

I disagree,this decision makes perfect sense.The person is undoubtedly a loyal Liberal and will use the most powerful propaganda machine in Canada on behalf of the Liberal Party during the next election campaign.

FYI….JJ McCoullough (sp?) tweeted that Ms Tait donated to the Liberal Party in at least three separate years with screen grabs from Elections Canada.

“During their time in office, the Trudeau Liberals are implementing plans to increase CBC funding by nearly $700 million during a five year period, raising concerns about how the organization can remain objective – particularly at election time – when they have a financial interest in seeing a specific political party get elected” Is this not somehow a conflict of interest ?

Absolutely it’s a conflict of interest. Tait will be ripped by social media for her donations and support for the Liberal Party and Trudeau. This type of cronyism is typical of liberals be it Democrats and CNN, NBC, CBS and ABC in the USA or the CBC in Canada. Influence peddling is a Liberal art form. However, the CBC belongs to Canadian taxpayers. Want it to change? Boycott both their advertisers in the market place and the Liberal Party at the polls. CTV and Global like Liberal govts too but they don’t draw on the public purse and their own… Read more »

First, the government would only pick a loyal-above-all Liberal for the job — that has been consistent over the years — and, second the whole idea was to ensure that the individual picked for the job demonstrated the above, plus this is oh-so-obviously planned for the next election.

As as side benefit, the government can also claim that they are clearly showing the feminist side by ensuring the choice was a woman.

All politics at its best.

As has been said many times we are only paying for cbc’s Lieberal propaganda advertising no real news, so unless their party wants to pay for it, taxpayers should not have to, It should be gone, we already have schools teaching the Lieberal left propaganda to the children at our expense. CBC needs to be gone. We need a Canadian, not slanted communist Lieberal propaganda at our expense, we want the real news about the real true happenings in Canada. This expensive advertisement for the Lieberals should be cancelled, I gave up on it many years ago. Tax payers should… Read more »

Here’s the email I received from Daniel Bernhard – FRIENDS of Canadian Broadcasting today….This is a liberal as it gets! I am very pleased to pass on the great news that Hubert Lacroix, Harper’s man at the CBC, will soon be gone. This morning, Heritage Minister Mélanie Joly announced the appointment of Catherine Tait as CBC’s next President and CEO. She also announced the appointment of Michael Goldbloom as chair of CBC’s Board. These two appointments strengthen CBC and follow a new arms-length process that will help to ensure CBC’s independence from partisan influence. You can read more about Joly’s… Read more »

The corruption cancer is expanding exponentially in this government with the elitist money sucking media leading the charge.
