The departure of Sylvain Lafrance from Radio-Canada draws attention to the Government Corporation and many wonder why this departure.
It should be added that several other pillars of Radio-Canada also recently announced their retirement from the host star Christiane Charette or the renowned and highly appreciated reporter that was Daniel Lessard.
Some say Harper’s intentions to privatize the corporation would be the trigger.
The prime minister does not hide his desire to diminish the role of government in financing public institutions like the CBC.
