Sorry but the Liberals have intentionally afflicted damage to the Western economy multiple times over the decades.

When has ANY other government done that to any part of the "country" we are all supposed to be equal partners in?
Who said we are equal partners in this country? Obviously we are not. And havenít been... ever. In fact most provinces arenít. This is a country ruled by 2 provinces.

Disturbing news around the Trudeau government trying to exhert control over the media when it comes to SNC Lavalin


https://buffalochronicle.com/2019/03...foreign-press/


Quote:
In the days approaching former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould‘s testimony to the House of Commons’ Justice Committee on February 27, at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau‘s behest, Karina Gould, the Minister of Democratic Institutions, reached out to social media giant Google to pressure the firm to curtail political criticism of the Trudeau government on its platform.
Gould placed a call to a senior government relations executive at Google, during which she complained about ‘hate speech’ and ‘toxic rhetoric’, referring multiple times to specific criticisms of the Trudeau government that she found objectionable. She then threatened sweeping regulations that would require unprecedented disclosures of advertising sponsors.

Quote:
n the days following Wilson-Raybould’s testimony, and just two weeks after Gould told a House committee that there was “more she was planning to do” to “limit foreign influence” in the election, The Chronicle noticed that articles published on our digital platform relating to the ongoing SNC Lavalin scandal stopped appearing in Google News search results in Canada. (Our coverage continues to appear in regular Google search results, and in Google News results in the United States).

On the same day as Wilson-Raybould’s testimony, Gould turned to iPolitics to publicly disparage a recent Chronicle report, with defamatory comments from Gould and a PMO spokesman. The author of the piece, Charlie Pinkerton, used a Twitter comment made by an obscure reporter who formerly wrote for Vice, to broadly characterize this publication as ‘fake’ news.

So the media control rules were supposed to be put into place to stop election interference and so called false story. Not to stop stories that say mean things about the prime minister that is actual news.


It will be interesting during the election, because I'm betting stories that say bad things about the NDP and Cons will be ok'ed by the new Federal censorship and truth commission while all stories that question the greatness of Justin will be banned.

Remember who decides this funding, after all it may be the difference between writing those articles and being told to learn to code.

This is why I found it interesting a paper from Buffalo was quoted and carried the story. If Canadian media is being muzzled this might be an effective way to get around the issue. There are plenty of US media sources in close proximity to the border that could be utilized to carry a message that Canadian media might be reluctant to carry.

I thought that I should let you guys know that this publication is basically garbage and puts out all kinds of fake news stories. That's one of them.

Now he can move to his bomb shelter and hide himself from mean comments on twitter while waiting for all of the assassinations to happen.
