TORONTO, Aug. 30, 2018 /CNW/ - After the publication of an opinion piece on May 8th, 2018 pertaining to Christine Moore, CBC News received further information from Mrs. Moore and has decided to publish the following text adjacent to the column:
"On May 8th, CBC News published the following opinion piece, which contained allegations against NDP MP Christine Moore. The piece argues a power imbalance in a relationship between the MP and a soldier suffering from PTSD who appeared before her at a Commons committee.
Moore was asked to respond to the allegations but asked for more time, which CBC News did not provide. We should have allowed Christine Moore enough time to provide her responses, which can be found in subsequent news articles, including:
Moore strongly denied the relationship was anything but fully mutual and consensual and provided evidence supporting this. CBC News apologizes to Moore for any inference to the contrary.
On July 19, 2018, a report commissioned by NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh cleared Moore of any wrongdoing:
The article did not meet all of our editorial standards, and we apologize to Christine Moore."
Christine Moore agrees the above text addresses her concerns with the column.
