Former Radio-Canada editor Michel Morin has been appointed CRTC commissioner, a position that holds a 5-year mandate.
Morin spent more than 34 years in broadcasting and has been a journalist and economic news editor. Most recently, he was the chief editor of TV news for Radio-Canada and the French language news network RDI. (source : CBC)
Morin’s nomination came courtesy of Heritage Minister Bev Oda. On an unrelated note, rumour has it that Ms Oda is on her way out. I can’t say I know many artists who will be wearing black arm bands the day of Harper’s cabinet shuffle.
