Former Harper aide at Quebecor spearheads bid for ‘conservative-minded’ channel

by

Former Harper aide Kory Teneycke is spearheading a bid for a Fox News-style TV station in Canada with an “unabashedly right-of-centre perspective,” the Globe and Mail reports. Teneycke was appointed vice president of business development at Quebecor Media Inc. this week, and has helped to file an application with the CRTC to operate an English-language news channel. This news venture would target conservative-minded Canadians with a “clearly separated” mix of straightforward reporting and conservative-minded opinion shows. A decision on the application is reportedly imminent.
