CBC places 2 execs on “involuntary” leave of absence related to #JianGhomeshi scandal

CBC executives Todd Spencer and Chris Boyce are on leave of absence “effective today until further notice,” says a note from the corporation’s vice-president of English services.

Spencer is the English service’s executive director of human resources and industrial relations. Boyce is the executive director of CBC Radio and audio.

The leaves of absence were not taken voluntarily, Thompson said.

A note from Heather Conway, executive vice-president of English services, and Roula Zaarour, vice-president of people and culture, sent to staff on Monday said the past couple of months “have been difficult for many people,” but provided scant details about the leave.
