Joint Statement Regarding St?phane Gendron’s Comments

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Montreal, January 27, 2012 – V Network reiterates today that the network dissociates itself from the unfortunate comments made by talk show host St?phane Gendron about Jews and the state of Israel.  V Network would like to reassure the public that these types of comments will no longer be tolerated on its airwaves.  Furthermore, Mr. Gendron made a statement on air today expressing regret for his previous comments.

To that effect, the administration of V Network will shortly be meeting with representatives of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs and HonestReporting Canada.

The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs and HonestReporting Canada appreciate the commitment of V Network to respect the ethical broadcasting standards and take note of St?phane Gendron’s statement today.  The two organizations look forward to meeting with the administration of V Network, which will also be an opportunity to address the important distinction between legitimate criticism of Israeli policies and the delegitimization of the Jewish people’s right to self-determination.
