I saw the very surprising news that Kory is leaving Sun News TV. Kory is an amazing, very intelligent guy and I have no doubt he will succeed in whatever he does. I am not that happy that he is leaving SunTv News, but I am sure he knows what is best. I wish my friend Kory only good things for him and his family. I must say this does make a bit less enthusiastic about the project, which I am assured will continue under the capable guidance of Luc Lavoie.
OTTAWA — Kory Teneycke, the mastermind behind Sun TV News Channel, has resigned.
