Blogpost from Fagstein.

While Canadians were focused on a U.S. presidential debate, a trailer was released for a new conservative news channel called The News Forum that purports to “provide viewers with politically balanced domestic and international perspectives, inclusive of a conservative counterbalance for the current media landscape.”
The channel has a carriage deal with Bell Canada on all Bell’s TV systems.
Its ownership is a bit unclear, but its CEO is Tore Stautland, who is CEO of Trillennium Media Group Inc. , a producer of mainly Christian programming for channels like Daystar Canada, Vision and Joytv.
Its on-air hosts include former Conservative minister Tony Clementformer Ontario Progressive Conservative Party leadership candidate Tanya Granic Allenauthor Faytene Grasseschilawyer K.R. Davidsonformer YesTV host Sheldon Neil , and former Global Thunder Bay reporter/anchor Nima Rajan.
From its ownership, description, choice of hosts and choice of topics and guests, it seems clear that The News Forum is designed to be a social/religious conservative outlet, meant more as a source of right-wing opinion than hard news. Which will no doubt draw comparisons to the Sun News Network, Quebecor’s right-wing news-opinion channel that shut down five years ago .
Based on my brief glances at its programming available online, it seems the main differences relate to tone (no Ezra Levant or Brian Lilley gleefully throwing mud, though Lilley has already been a guest ), slant (more religious) and budget (more along the lines of a YouTube channel than a major TV network).
