A reliable source told CTV News that former Conservative Senator Mike Duffy approached a Conservative insider with connections to the CRTC. The purpose: help right-wing channel Sun News become "mandatory carriage" of all service providers offering the channel a huge boost in revenue.
"You know people at the CRTC," the insider quoted Duffy as saying. "This is an important decision on Sun Media. They have to play with the team and support Sun Media’s request."
NDP MP Olivia Chow said this recent news is clearly unacceptable.
“Helping insider friends to get access to power -- this is just unacceptable,” she said.
