Lisa LaFlamme, a former CTV News anchor, said on Twitter more than two weeks ago that Bell Media had ended her contract.
But she is still in the news, especially outside of Canada, where the controversy over her sudden firing after more than 30 years on the air is getting a new round of coverage.
When people first heard that LaFlamme had been fired, they were very angry. In an internal memo, Michael Melling, the vice president of news at
Bell Media, said last Friday that he was leaving his job for a while. He was already in the middle of a controversy over LaFlamme's firing when The
Globe and Mail, citing a senior company official, said Melling had questioned LaFlamme's decision to let her hair turn grey.
This started a lot of talk and anger, which has now spread around the world. Companies like Dove, Wendy's, and Sports Illustrated have also weighed
in with their own "going grey" campaigns. The Canadian Forces talked about the firing of LaFlamme on Monday's edition of "Spotlight on Military News and International Affairs."
After a number of people told the Star that Bell Media newsrooms were "toxic" and "stressful" places to work, forcing staff to take leaves of absence
or quit, CTV kept making headlines. The accusations come at a time when "quiet quitting," a topic that went viral on TikTok, is all over social media.
The company recently said that a third party will review the workplace.
