You have also heard of NPR, CNN, BBC and MSNBC right?
I have no idea what Vincefort's political views are, but he might have a point even though it was expressed maladroitly.
I am pretty media-knowledgeable and consider Radio-Canada and CBC the best news outlets in the country. I consider them fairly unbiased, but that doesn't mean they can't have any bias at all. Being on the left myself, I am willing to admit that at least part of my appreciation of them is because they rarely do stuff that shocks my sensibilities. I wonder how I'd feel if Radio-Canada and CBC were on the flip-side of all of this, and more left-skeptical.
It is true that in Canada views that are considered unpleasant to hear are often verboten and swept under the carpet. Right wing conservative views more often than not.
Countries like the US and France do have more open debate it seems, even though it's sometimes very messy.
