CanWest Station Criticized for Showing Drunken Boater on Kids Primetime

| About: CanWest Global (CWGVF)

Global Television, a division of CanWest Global Communications Corp. (CWG) which trades on the New York Stock Exchange, presented a TV show at 10am on a Saturday morning which featured a man holding a beer driving a boat which contained a cooler filled with beer cans.

The man used inappropriate language to tell the viewing children that they could live like him. The Canadian Broadcast Standards Council gave the station a formal reprimand. CWG was down 3 cents on Friday.
