Fillion calls it quits

Jeff Fillion, popular shock-jock from CHOI-FM, called it quits today. Check it out here, here, here, and here (in French). He was supposed to leave on April 1st.

CHOI-FM lost their licence because of Fillion and his antics. The consequence of this was incredible, highlighted by about 50,000 Quebeckers who protested in the streets in defence of the most popular Quebec City radio program. The station is still set to close.
