In addition, our policy also prohibits the creation of fictitious user accounts for the purpose of circumventing ticket limit detection in order to amass tickets intended for resale. Kinch said she was comforted by how much the staff pulled together through this process. From the way he said it, I think he thinks it should.
Lacroix and the CBC have launched a survey to ask Canadians about their priorities. A communications officer position is being made redundant. It reminded him that those people are out there. So it meant another awkward message asking for an interview. Those departments still operating on the ground floor were finally moved into this new space, which used to belong to Radio Canada International.
There are still conference rooms available of various sizes, and rooms with telephones and computer consoles so that people can hold conversations or edit radio pieces in peace.
The announcement came the day after the Star and CBC published an undercover investigation in which Ticketmaster employees told journalists posing as scalpers that the company turns a blind eye to how resellers acquire tickets.
His point is that the local TV model no longer works, and the private broadcasters will eventually start pulling TV stations off the air if nothing changes. The changes break down as follows: Frank Opolko will take over producing both jobs.
It talks about how important the public broadcaster is, but also says some tough decisions need to be made in consultation with Canadians. It feels good to know that people appreciated what I did. I asked her if there was anything else she could do budget-wise other than cutting staff.

We went undercover as ticket scalpers — and Ticketmaster offered to help us do business In March, CBC and Star reporters downloaded a copy of Trade Desk and were offered a live tutorial via video conference with a Ticketmaster employee.

But by September, the changes should have taken effect.
Kinch said she realizes that not every reporter can do this for every story. You just take it as it comes. Sacrifices Meanwhile, this week there were some high-profile voluntary departures from the CBC. Departing employees were flooded with support from their colleagues.
