Radio-Canada’s “left” or, rather, neo-progressive bias is not new.
There are quality hosts and journalists, unwatchable programs and the occasional unexpected guest, but something like the Canadian radio ideology dominates, the core of which is definitely militant multiculturalism.
But now I believe we have reached a milestone with the new standards put forward to regulate what we call offensive language, destiny We learned of the existence yesterday.
