CBC silent on this story. Wonder if the CBC would have ignored this story if bodies HAD been found? I think we know the answer to that one.
GPR is inconclusive. It may give a idea of where to dig, but barely a clue of what may be recovered. The story goes on to justify T&R because from 1890 to 1969 there are records of 21 deaths. Geeeez, I’d say that few deaths is pretty amazing considering people can die at any age from many diseases, especially more than 100 years back.
Nepinak said he is aware the results will feed into a denialist narrative of what happened at residential schools and urged people to continue supporting the search for truth.
The truth is there were no graves. The ‘denalists’ are correct in this instance. Without excavation there is no search for truth. The Liberals and specific interest groups are the denialists. They want the public to accept any fairy tale with little to no evidence.

I couldn't agree more. All hell would have broken loose if a body would have been found. The silence is dealing in the MSM. Balanced news coverage my *bleep*. They wonder why they have lost the trust of the people. Really seems like an agenda at play. End game?????

Are you keeping an eye on "The Voice" referendum in Austrailia. Check it out. That's what's going to be next in Canada. I wonder how much money the canadian government is paying for canadian indigenous observers in this Austrailian referendum. It's never going to end.

Freeland gets charged with excessive speeding, and CBC doesn't know about it.
Maybe they were looking for it on Facebook? [icon_lol2.gif]

A BILLION DOLLARS gets zilch from CBC.

I also give thanks for this ethos richness bestowed on us via British Colonialism.

CBC exec billed taxpayers for $30,000 in travel expenses, chauffeured five blocks

This is what happens when you hand a Crown Corporation $1.3 billion per year with zero accountability, all on the pretense that in return, they will serve as a propaganda organ for your political party, and make sure that all questions to the dense leader are predetermined and of a softball nature. Just disgusting.

It’s absolutely stunning how deep the Niberals and their mouthpiece supporters have burrowed into our wallets.

What galls me most are the Socialist Lefties that are forever whining that CEO’s of private Corporations are receiving bonuses but are tight-lipped about CBC head cheeses that live like royalty on our dime, year after year with nothing to show for it.






CBC executive Michel Bissonnette has charged almost $30,000 for travel costs this year. According to records, this includes a trip to the French Riviera that got cancelled.

Bissonnette, executive vice-president of French-language services at the CBC, often flew in business class to Paris and even paid a driver to chauffeur him just five blocks in downtown Ottawa



“All the expenses in question are in compliance with our policies governing employee expenses,” said Marc Pichette, spokesperson for the CBC.

“The upcoming trip to Monaco to which you refer was cancelled.”

Records show that since January 1, Bissonnette charged the public $26,747 for travel costs. This includes $7,650 for a business class flight from Montreal to Paris and staying at a four-star hotel in Paris, Hotel Des Saints Peres, which costs $485 per night.

“Michel Bissonnette sits on the board of directors of TV5 International,” said a CBCmemo.
Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice. There’s a certain point at which ignorance becomes malice, at which there is simply no way to become THAT ignorant except deliberately and maliciously.

I routinely bill my company at lest 270K in travel costs. 30K is nothing and a small price to pay to help CBC continue to flourish. Thank you CBC.

Those corporations have boards of directors, shareholders, and checks and balances in place to ensure that no foolishness like this Bissonette wild spending can even happen. Clearly, the CBC has no approvals in place, and VP's have carte blanche to charge whatever they want.

The part I found especially sickening was this:
“Michel Bissonnette sits on the board of directors of TV5 International,” said a CBC memo.

“He must, therefore, attend the board meetings held in Paris.”

TV5 International is a French-language TV service. Canada pays $11 million a year to help run it. France, Belgium, and Switzerland also help pay for it.

Funding “seeks to promote Canada’s involvement and influence within the international cultural Francophone,” according to a 2007 department of Heritage report Evaluation of the TV5 Program.

The records show that Bissonnette spent $3,215 on business class plane tickets to Monaco for the start of TV Monaco on September 1. He planned to stay at the French Riviera for four days. It is unknown why he cancelled the trip.
Why the :swear: is Canada paying $11 million a year to fund a foreign French-language TV network? What is going on in Ottawa right now??? Is there anyone watching the till as the Liberals and the CBC just rape it continually??

No you don't.

It actually is something.

It's a large price to pay to watch the CBC continue to run itself right into the ground. Thank you CBC for giving us yet more reasons why there has to be some accountability brought to this money sucking black hole of garbage.

You're going to have to cut back. Justin's fundraiser was a flop.

Maybe don't answer your phone for a while, wait for the ROE to come in the mail.

The CBC failed to report on the Edmonton Disaster starring Justin Trudeau. What a shocker (NOT!).
