since 2008, audit reveals





From his 2008 appointment until he became the focus of an internal audit, CBC president Hubert Lacroix claimed nearly $30,000 in improper expenses, the broadcaster revealed Friday.

“We’ve been reporting a lot on ineligible expense claims by public officials, now we have a story in our own backyard,” CBC reporter Rosemary Barton announced on a Friday broadcast of Power and Politics.

As was revealed by CBC, Mr. Lacroix already receives a $1,500 per month living allowance that he negotiated to cover his frequent travel to Ottawa. Although the capital city is home to CBC’s head office, Mr. Lacroix has continued to live two hours away, in Montreal for the entirety of his six-year presidency.

It was in the midst of these frequent trips that Mr. Lacroix improperly expensed an additional $29,678 for meals, hotels and per diems.

make these a-holes go through the system like the rest of us who work/worked for Gov. Put in your requisition, wait 3 weeks for the PO to be approved, go down to stores and find out what you requested is out of stock as of yesterday and the PO to restock hasn't been approved yet.

I think that a full investigation of the CBC management and personalities like Suzuki is entirely in order.

They can go back over the years and review the graft and possibly lay criminal charges.

If it'd proper to do to the Senate, then state corporations, MPs, etc should all be held to the same standard

Col. Suzuki used to cook a decent bird until bought out by Pepsi. Even Ggs station Chester's is better.

Why do so many people on this board have a hard on for David Suzuki?

Mine is a symbolic gesture for what he lacks. My way of supporting the poor fool.

Yeah, it seems once these guys get a step or two "up the ladder" they think one of the perks is a license to steal. -

Because he is a loser that has been suckling at the public teat for decades.

Probably a natural reaction to the rich and famous. I have no problem with Suzuki, I don't have a lot of knowledge about the man but I have heard him talk on radio a couple of times and thought he made good points. I'd put him 30 rungs up the ladder above that A$$hole Paul Watson. -

Because he is a hypocrite and a parasite. Among other things.

How about just follow the recommendations of the 2003 Heritage committee?

"...in the interests of fuller accountability and arm's-length from government, nominations to the CBC Board should be made by a number of sources, and the CBC President should be hired by and be responsible to the Board."


Harper, of course, hand picks and appoints. Just like the Senate.

Now that the RC's are auditing everyone going back years, expect to see the Lib stacked senate be uncovered.

... Starting to make a little more sense why Justine pulled his little senate stunt recently, eh?

All that said, I am far more interested in the audit covering Suzuki for his tenure... There is a reason why he stepped down from Suzuki Foundation ya know

Just pointing out the hypocrisy. His royal heinousness is real good at pointing fingers and making promises about what he wouldn't do. Guess he thinks ALL Canadians are as blind and stupid as his supporters.

Has it occurred to you that advanced age might be a good reason? -

Harper counts on the retarded nature of the socialist ideologues in Canada

Suzuki represents all that is the entitlement mentality rife within the libs and dippers in Canada.

A good Liberal, jack-booted storm trooper on top of it all

No, he depends on the blind, brainless minions that have supported him from day one.

Personally, I'd love to see each and every SOB that has screwed the public out of "benefits", "expenses", etc. that were not warranted, nailed to the shame tree (a webpage will do) in the public square (the internet and other media). I'd love to see them figuratively disengendered in public.
Um, wtf? I thought this was about CBC prez, not Snoozuki.
