A Good Week for CBC News
Far from just showing men (and one woman) in suits, walking blissfully for a photo op, some real news was broken, and on the flagship newscast, The National. That's where an extraordinary bit of journalism occurred this past week.
In an interview with the head of the Canadian intelligence service (CSIS), Richard Fadden dropped a bombshell: he claimed some unnamed municipal officials and cabinet ministers from two unnamed provinces, are being influenced by foreign governments.
Fadden then hinted China was one of the countries wielding influence. He also said some municipal officials in B.C. are among those being influenced by foreign governments.
