The whole interview with Chris Boyce is on the CBC website.
There’s one clear discrepancy between his account and that of other people. He says he asked people who worked with Ghomeshi if they had anything more to report, and to tell him about it. The Fifth Estate people (see what I mean about awkward?) polled all those people to ask if Boyce had asked them that and every single one said no, there was nothing like that at all.
So…yes, it’s all too reminiscent of the way the JREF and DJ Grothe and even James Randi dealt with reports of sexual harassment and even rape. Silencing and lies.
And it’s in the same cause – the protection of popular Star men, and the organization’s ability to profit from the popularity of the Star men.
It’s all too familiar.
