Like current events themselves and the world of newsgathering, ICI RDI is constantly evolving
“Like current events themselves and the world of newsgathering, ICI RDI is constantly evolving. Among our new offerings this season is the first-ever program designed to debunk fake news and help the public do the same: LESDÉCRYPTEURS, hosted by Alexis de Lancer every Friday. Weekday afternoons, Christian Latreille brings his expertise as a foreign correspondent in the U.S. to the anchor desk for L'INFO en après-midi. And with a federal election campaign under way, our signature political-affairs programs will be more indispensable than ever when it comes to analyzing and debating social issues and Canadians' concerns.” Paule Genest, Senior Director, Réseau de l'Information
