Following HonestReporting Canada's complaint, CBC News issued the following on-air apology and correction on January 26 to remedy our public broadcaster's erroneously reporting that Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer pledged to move Canada's Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Instead, Scheer pledged to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
CBC Anchor: "We'd like to correct something we reported around this time last week. Conservative leader Andrew Scheer answered questions at a town hall style event which we carried live. After that event, we reported that he pledged to move Canada's Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. That was incorrect. What he said was a Conservative government would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, so we apologize for the mischaracterization of his remark."
