Several media personalities in Victoria were among Bell Media’s latest job cuts.
On June 14th, many employees of Bell Canada Enterprises (BCE) were laid off across the country as the company says it is going through some “organizational changes”.
Over 1,300 employees lost their jobs in the mass layoff and six radio stations were taken off air because BCE says it incurs around $40 million in annual operating losses and over $250 million in phone revenue losses.
