Mansbridge and Wallin, once co-anchors, reunited on the air in different roles

It wasn't much like old times, way back when Mansbridge and Wallin had a brief run as co-anchors of The National. Nor was there any mention of that relatively brief episode in their interview last night. It didn't work out for the CBC and she soon left the Corp. Opinions differ but it seemed at the time that Mansbridge did not want a co-anchor. Wallin never adapted to the CBC bureaucracy and went on to greater heights, including consul general in New York and, of course, the Senate.
There was no mention of past history in the interview in which she admitted to mistakes. Full public reaction is yet to come but The National's "At Issue" panel that followed was not impressed.
