Respect - Kai Nagata

Good day,

 I want to take some time out to celebrate Kai Nagata, a former CTV Employee who quit his job on the grounds that the Canadian news industry is transforming into something ugly. That, however, is an oversimplification of an astounding expose, and I encourage everyone here to read the post:

 Don't be intimidated by the length, the actual article stops maybe 1/20th of the way down and the rest of the page is just comments. This hit home for me as my mother used to work for the CBC at some point in time and I see a lot of the points he's made here reviving some memories of mine.

 Kai, if you're reading this (and I hope you are), you have my respect. We need more people like you in this country, and in the world. Wherever the winds take you next, I hope you do well there.

 Anyway, carry on. I just wanted to share this with you lot.

See you next time,

-RWI
