TVO says it is backing out of a documentary about Premier Kathleen Wynne because of concerns about its "editorial integrity." The documentary had been commissioned from White Pine Pictures and TVO says it insisted "there be a journalistic treatment" of the film, but after the director walked away from the project, TVO did too. A spokeswoman for Wynne says her office had concerns the documentary was deviating from the original premise of a behind-the-scenes look at the preparation for the budget. Wynne says she hopes the film can still proceed. (The Toronto Star cited sources as saying the premier's aides wanted to see the entire film before signing release forms and they were "alarmed by an apparent focus" on a byelection scandal.)
