CBC/Radio-Canada will not remove the document What Quebecor won’t tell you about its attacks on the public broadcaster from its website.
The Crown corporation has issued its response to the legal notice Quebecor sent last week to the public broadcaster. In the notice, Quebecor demands that CBC/Radio-Canada remove the document from its website along with another accompanying it, Examining Quebecor Media’s Free Market Message.
In its response letter, the public broadcaster denies Quebecor’s allegations, also stating that the documents were not posted in a malicious manner, and that the information they contain is not defamatory. The documents were simply posted to present the facts to the public.
CBC/Radio-Canada also advises Quebecor that any legal action it takes against the Corporation in this matter would be considered unfounded, and vigorously challenged.
