There is a death spirit at Radio-Canada (Montreal) as the news director Alain Saulnier said that he had been forced to resign on 16 March. It seems he did not get along with the big boss Louis Lalande …
This is the Acadian journalist Michel Cormier who will replace Saulnier. Cormier had wreaked havoc on his recent arrival in the general direction of the CBC Moncton moving star host Abbé Lanteigne from the regional newscast.
Now some Acadians are suggesting that the new director of Radio-Canada Moncton should be Abbé Lanteigne!
Many observers also said that the departure of the host star Christiane Charette one year ago was also motivated by the arrival of Lalande at the top radio job.
One could say that a storm is blowing through the CBC … Stay tuned!
