Biography

Jeff Fillion (full name Jean-Francois Fillion) began his career in his home town of Chicoutimi in the late 1980s working for CFIX-FM. Most of his reputation comes from his stint, from 1997 to 2005, as morning man with radio station CHOI-FM in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. He developed over time a strong following, and at his peak, had more than twice as many listeners as his nearest competitor. However, his very controversial and politically incorrect comments, combined with those of André Arthur, resulted in the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) refusing to renew the station’s licence in July 2004. The station and license were bought by RNC Media in June 2007 without interruption to its broadcasting.

He was fired on March 17, 2005, in the fallout of the trial from Sophie Chiasson against him and his then-employer. The judgement was particularly severe, with the judge noting that the comments made by Jeff Fillion regarding Miss Chiasson were : “sexist, mean, incited hatred, were without cause, wounding and injurious. These comments are a threat to the dignity and honour of human kind in general and particularly to Miss Chiasson”. [1]. The participants in the radio show (Fillion and gang) referred to the plaintiff as “a consummate liar,” “a cat in heat,” as well as “a leech on (hockey player) Alexandre Daigle,” “an airhead” and repeatedly suggested Chiasson used sex to get jobs. [2] Miss Chiasson was awarded $340 000 CAD in punitive damages. [3].
