What about the people who appointed them?

Cowichan Bay – Wednesday’s editorial about Hubert Lacroix’s inappropriate expenses was interesting and appropriate. However, since he is the president of CBC, the suggestion that the CBC should demand his resignation seems a little difficult to follow. The president is the boss and it is unclear who in any organization is in a position to demand the boss should resign.

In this particular case, it is even more unlikely to happen since the Harper government has stacked the CBC board with Conservative appointees. Indeed, Lacroix and three of the four senators mentioned in the editorial were also appointed by the same government.

While criticism of the individuals for inappropriate behaviour is totally justified, criticism of the person who appointed them should also have been highlighted. Clearly such a person has very poor judgment.
