Well, this is unexpected. 102.1 The Edge‘s Dean Blundell Show, a near-constant source of complaints to the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council, has been suspended from the airwaves by its corporate overlords at Corus Entertainment. A brief statement on The Edge’s website doesn’t specify a reason, but we can only assume it has something to do with Blundell producer Derek Welsman‘s decision to talk on-air about his time as foreman of a jury in a sexual assault trial. The show’s homophobic banter about the trial’s specifics may affect the conviction of Joshua Dowholis, who allegedly assaulted men he met at a downtown bathhouse.
