So now that journalist Sue Sherring is leaving the Postmedia conglomeration of the Sun and Citizen, exactly what do we have left for opinion on Ottawa City Hall?
For comment, the Citizen’s Kelly Egan sometimes touches on city hall. So too David Reevely a bit more often. Randy Denley once a week.
But that’s about it. Now and then other outlets jump in and jump out. But in total, things are getting very thin on Laurier Avenue and that’s not good for democracy.
So it was with a fair amount of disgust that I heard the comments of Conservative leadership candidate Kellie Leitch.
“The CBC doesn’t need to be reformed, it needs to be dismantled. Taxpayers should not have to subsidize the CBC to keep it afloat.”
Deep thinking there, Ms. Leitch. When the short strokes come, and it won’t be long, it’s likely just the CBC will survive.
So we take it that no news is better than the CBC in Ms. Leitch’s myopic world.
Where’s that liberal Donald Trump when we need him?
Let’s hope Ms. Leitch never gets her hands on any power.
