Quebec radio station under fire for criticizing governments’ coronavirus measures


A conservative radio station in Quebec is not bowing down to pressure following its hosting of voices critical of coronavirus measures employed by various levels of government. Quebec City’s CHOI 98.1 Radio X is facing a boycott after critics say it downplayed the threat of COVID-19 by offering a platform to conspiracy theorists. Station owner RNC Media said the accusation doesn’t hold water, and that the criticism is coming from a place of “censorship.” After Quebec City announced that it would no longer advertise with Radio X, a number of other advertisers also abandoned the station.
