Jian Ghomeshi scandal leads to CBC ‘severing ties’ with ex-head of radio, HR director

The Star's Jacques Gallant reports:
"CBC said it had 'severed ties' with two senior executives Thursday as it released an independent report that said management 'condoned' inappropriate behaviour by former radio host Jian Ghomeshi. Former head of radio Chris Boyce and HR director Todd Spencer had been on leaves of absence since January.
“'Management knew or ought to have known of this behaviour and conduct and failed to take steps required of it in accordance with its own policies to ensure that the workplace was free from disrespectful and abusive conduct,' reads the report from employment lawyers Janice Rubin and Parisa Nikfarjam.
“'It is our conclusion that CBC management condoned this behaviour.'”
