Let the CBC Hating Begin!

The “Blogging Tories” may have dumped their search engine, but that won’t be needed to locate the howls of outrage at news of Radio-Canada’s high-flying sales and marketing GM Richard Portelance having claimed nearly $7,500 in expenses from January to June 2007 for meals in upscale eateries. And who could blame them?

Perhaps the meal expenses are par for the course to a certain extent and it’s small potatoes compared to the amount of advertising revenue he secures for the network, but the optics are horrible for someone working on the taxpayers’ dime.
