Hubert LaCroix continues his mission to destroy the CBC

Well, that’s my explanation for this:

While the CBC holds onto “Hockey Night in Canada,” the new deal will limit its control over the broadcast and lead to job losses at the public broadcaster.

In an internal memo, CBC president Hubert Lacroix said that “starting next year, Rogers will assume all editorial control (all editorial decisions with respect to the content, on-air talent and the creative direction of HNIC — we have the right to be consulted and there is a commitment to excellence) under the new agreement.”

He added that it wasn’t “the outcome we had hoped for,” confirming there will be job losses, though not as many as there would have been had they lost the NHL altogether.

Sure it wasn’t, Mr. Lacroix, sure it wasn’t.  I’m sure you weren’t seeking to damage the CBC brand when you opted to pass on the Hockey Night in Canada theme, either.  Your appointer’s colours are showing.
