"I think it's the CRTC that should apologize," said the Prime Minister on the sidelines of a press conference Tuesday afternoon.

Recall that the CRTC ordered Radio-Canada to provide a public apology because of a chronicle dating from the summer of 2020 during which the “word in n” was pronounced four times.

The federal agency is asking the Crown corporation to "specify how it intends to mitigate the impact of the 'word in n' in this segment of the show" by July 29.

The CRTC is also asking Radio-Canada to produce a report by September 27 of "internal measures and best practices in programming" that will be put in place "to ensure that a subject similar to the 'coming".

Since then, pressure has increased on Radio-Canada, so that the Crown corporation challenges the CRTC's decision.

Martin Matin, more than twenty well-known personalities from the media world, including MNA Christine St-Pierre, former news anchor Bernard Derome and former president of the Quebec Press Council, Paule Beaugrand- Champagne, demanded, in a letter addressed to the chairman of the board of directors of Radio-Canada, Michael Goldbloom, that the SRC challenge the CRTC's decision in court.

This letter, published in Le Devoir, was the third missive of this kind since the CRTC made the decision to blame the CBC.

The Radio-Canada board of directors is to meet this week to orchestrate at the CRTC. “We want to take the time necessary to study the decision rendered by the CRTC and the follow-up actions to be taken”, we informed the Journal de Québec.
