NEW CHAIRPERSON OF THE SENATE COMMITTEE THAT STUDIED THE IRVING MONOPOLY OF NEWSPAPERS IN NEW BRUNSWICK!!

The question is - What happen???

Hello Charles,

This is just an FYI that I thought may be interesting to both you Charles and your readers.

I emailed Senator Joan Fraser, the Chair of the Transport and Communications committee that was preparing the report into media
concentration.

I was asking her what happened to this report.. She replied that she was no longer the chair of that committee, but that Lise Bacon, a fellow liberal appointed senator by Jean Chretien was now
chairing that committee and was working towards
tabling the report of media concentration sometime in June.

I have emailed Lise Bacon to find out if this is true, but have yet to hear back from her.
