Why Was This Not in

A Canadian citizen, clearly marked as a medic, was shot by Israeli snipers. His rescuer, another clearly marked medic, was shot in the chest and died. This information is relevant to Canadians, ands it clearly shows the criminality and brutality of Israel's behaviour, but it was not a top item in; it was not even an item.

It was a side story in "As it Happens":

Canadian shot in Gaza says he was 'clearly marked' as a doctor

CBC made a big deal, published over several days, of Abbas saying some things that seemed to sound anti-Semitic.That was big news for CBC. How terrible that the Palestinian leader says nasty things about Jews. It would be much more newsworthy if Abbas said nice things about Jews, considering the suffering Israel Jews and their Diaspora enablers, have cause Palestinians. That was hardly real news.

But when a Canadian is injured, that should be treated as top priority real news, but CBC chose to mostly ignore it.

CBC works for Israel, not for Canadians, and this is omission makes this very clear.
