PKP versus CBC: who’s cheering?

Interesting post from the Globe and Mail describing “war” between media giants Quebecor, led by Pierre Karl Peladeau, and the national broadcaster, the CBC. Turns out Sunmedia doesn’t like the state supported broadcaster (even though it strived mightily for state support to inflict Sun TV on every cable customer). As often happens, the “war” is heavily effected by Quebec’s infernal, eternal debate between nationalists and federalists. As the final comment puts it so eloquently, “this is the kind of war you wish both sides could lose.”
