Separating Evan Solomon's conduct from CBC culture is hard to do

I can imagine Evan Solomon preparing a pitch to the dragons on CBC's beloved Dragons' Den -- beloved by CBC itself. "I traffic in people of great power. That's my world," he says, repeating a line from a recent profile. Then he continues: I leverage these relationships -- make connections -- to orchestrate deals and I take a percentage. No labour or startup costs and the returns are huge. As you guys say, Greed is good. The dragons raise a few doubts over his public role and this biz on the side but they like it. They're in.

When CBC management announced following the dismissal of Jian Ghomeshi last October that the radio program Q would be re-launched, I hoped that we might see a revival of true Canadian arts and culture programming in radio's morning time slot.  

I and tens-of-thousands of other Canadians yearn for the return of programming similar to some of the greatest radio broadcasting in the world that found its home on CBC Radio going back to the mid-1970s -- programs such as This Country in the Morning, Morningside and This Country.
