Sc-OOPS: The news CBC missed on Tuesday.....

It was the lead story on The National for days.
It was a story driven by the investigative work of CBC Radio reporter Louise Elliott.
It was a story about Agent Orange and its impact on people near CFB Gagetown.
CBC television and radio provided wall to wall coverage in the spring when public hearings were held at CFB Gagetown.
The federal government finally responded to those concerns today.
It released its three-pronged response to Agent Orange concerns today.
But CBC listeners and viewers won't find out about it.
It seems the BBC doesn't have much interest in the
story.

Is that response adequate?
Who's to know?
CBC management won't let its reporters ask the probing questions needed to push the government on this issue.
