Quebecor Media Inc. is asking CBC/Radio-Canada to remove material form its website that it calls “false, incomplete and defamatory.” In a letter to the CBC and released to the media Friday, Bernard Pageau, Quebecor’s director of legal affairs, advised CBC to “immediately” remove a webpage website called “What Quebecor won’t tell you about its attacks on the public broadcaster” as well as another document this month entitled “Examining Quebecor Media’s Free Market Message.” Pageau wrote that the CBC falsely claims that Quebecor has received more than half a billion dollars in federal grants and direct and indirect benefits over the last three years without being held accountable. One of those was a grant from the Canada Media Fund (CMF), from which the CBC has also received funding, Pageau wrote. He added that Quebecor subsidiary Videotron Ltée. is one of the largest contributors to the CMF. Quebecor said the information was disseminated without verification in a malicious manner to interfere with the testimony of Pierre Karl Péladeau, president and CEO of Quebecor, who appeared before the House of Commons Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics Committee on Oct. 20.
