Is a friend of Dimitri Soudas's Really the Best Choice for the CRTC?

Dimitri Soudas has been involved in some of the most underhanded backroom deals, since Marjorie LeBreton played kingmaker for Brian Mulroney.

So Canadians should be very concerned when we learn that one his chums has been appointed to the CRTC.
Tom Pentefountas, who was appointed on Friday, "failed on every count" of the vetting process, Angus said during question period in the House of Commons on Monday. "This appointment stinks." Angus and NDP House leader Libby Davies charged that Pentefountas, a former president of Quebec's conservative ADQ party, does not meet several of the job's requirements, including an in-depth knowledge of the broadcasting industry and media convergence.
These guys no longer even try to hide their corruption. Instead they flaunt it like a badge of (dis)honour.

So I wonder why they needed a neocon insider. Was it for Fox News North, or the Egyptian dictator?
