Updates on two posts from earlier this year:
- Sean Tucker and Andrew Stevens, two professors at the University of Regina, gave a speech at the university about the flawed polling that is being used to support the anti-union Bill C-377 in Canada’s Parliament. They have now published an article in the journal Labour/Le Travail which gives even more detail on their findings around the history of this proposed legislation. A news story about the contents of the article is here.
- After writing a post about an interview that CBC journalist Amanda Lang conducted with John Mortimer, head of the anti-union Canadian LabourWatch Association, I submitted a complaint to the CBC about the lack of union perspectives in the interview. This week, the CBC ombudsman issued a ruling agreeing with the complaint. The text of her ruling is here.
- And on a related note, two weeks earlier the CBC ombudsman issued a ruling that Lang violated the CBC’s conflict of interest policy, by not revealing personal connections to the Royal Bank of Canada before she interviewed the bank’s CEO. The text of that ruling is here.
