City TV Camera man moonlighting for developer
In a bizarre twist a crew that had pruported to be with CITY TV was in fact hired by Empire to video the protestors. The information came to light after the camera man got into a confrontation with a Turtle Island News reporter camera man and assaulted him. The City TV camera man then got into a verbal exchange with Turtle Island News editor Lynda Powless when he refused to identify himself. The man had been interviewing protestors who thought he was there for CITY TV. Powless was concerned about the credentials of the two men and the cameraman verbally assaulted Powless. "During the Reclamation in Caledonia there was a number of people posing as reporters, camera men and media people," she said "As a journalist I become concerned when I see another media person not acting in a professional manner, refusing to identify themselves and not wearing any media credentials. It looked suspicious so I just went over there and asked him who he was and he became abusive," she said. Kathleen O'Keefe ann investigator for CHUM TV the owners of CITY TV says that the cameraman does work for them but he was not assigned to be in Brantford to cover any protests. She said CHUM TV has concerns about the situation and that the actions of the cameraman does not reflect CHUM TV of CITY TV's views
