Anne and Lara should have no problem finding new jobs. As long as Dina from BT is still around, I'm happy

Gord ......


Hmm it is very strange. Did they go in order when it comes to the seniority? Looks like Mark has more senority than all those being fired...

Makes perfect sense to me, fire everyone get new blood and most important reduce the wages.

No way, You think it is that easy? Let me put it this way. Have you noticed how the "fired ones" have treated the new staff with low seniority? They work crazy hours, that would lead them to quit and move over to global..

Imho just take a look at the former policeman and Gord. Cam Wooley would get a second career at CP24 after retiring from his old job. Why would not they get some young student to take that job that is in debt to his neck?
Where is the scripted propaganda about not hiring those over 50+ lol

That can go for Gord as well. He has been all over the world and what not. Once you are done with the school, you get married, the wife may not work and you have to take care of car and house payments. You would not go anywhere.

being in media these jobs your job is secured only to the next paycheck.Look at all the newspaper outlets letting go of staff.It not good to be working in this field these days,no job security at all.So those bitching about their jobs should really be thankful your still pulling decent coin because the unemployment in the GTA is hitting %10 but more than likely %15 since a lot of those who benefits ran out went back to school or is working two part time jobs.......

Good point. That goes for those with low seniority at CP24. The banks are calling you for the student loans , and you have to do something.

I think Anne looks hot for her age. Really only seeing her do hosting and nothing else.
