The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) is Canada’s state-owned and taxpayer-funded news outlet. Most Canadians look upon it as the official PR firm for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

But a former producer for CBC, Tara Henley, who resigned this week, has come out with a scathing article stating she resigned from the network because of its radical shift to the left.

When she started to work for CBC in 2013, Henley considered herself one of the more Liberal reporters in the newsroom, but eight years later, she was basically the most conservative, even though her views hadn’t changed.

Fox News explains:

Henley, who identifies as a liberal herself, published her scathing resignation announcement on Substsack, detailing a newsroom stifled by far-left ideology that limits critical thinking and obsesses over race. In her piece, Henley blamed “a radical political agenda that originated on Ivy League campuses in the United States and spread through American social media platforms” whose proponents “monetize outrage and stoke societal divisions” for setting the tone of current media outlets such as the CBC. She feels that too many newsroom-decision makers are products of the prestigious universities that helped create the issue in the first place.”

Since she published her article on substack, several CBC reporters have contacted Henley expressing a similar sentiment.

She was also surprised by the number of “prominent American journalists” who have reached out, stating they have the exact same problem in their newsrooms.
