The CBC modernization panel has been named. Here’s who’s on it

Seven multimedia experts have been selected to advise Heritage Minister Pascale St-Onge as she renews the role of Canada’s public broadcaster.

The group will provide policy advice mainly on CBC/Radio-Canada’s governance and funding, Canadian Heritage said.

The department notes that consultations on the CBC’s mandate have already been done with the general public.

The newly appointed advisory panel will now help St-Onge chart a path forward, with members contributing knowledge from a variety of fields.

St-Onge said committee members have diverse perspectives and experiences that will help her modernize CBC and its French-language arm, Radio-Canada.

That comes after the committee last week called the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s president and CEO Catherine Tait — who could make more than $120,000 in bonuses on top of her six-figure salary, according to CBC documents — to appear as a witness in the new year.

San Francisco’s free booze for homeless alcoholics program slammed by critics

San Francisco is getting hammered for spending millions of dollars on a program that gives free booze to homeless alcoholics, but researchers are insisting the multimillion-dollar strategy has merit.

Keanan Joyner, a professor and researcher in the Clinical Research on Externalizing and Addiction Mechanisms Lab at the University of California, Berkeley, called San Francisco’s Managed Alcohol Program, or MAP, “a very positive thing.”
