The SNC Lavalin matter and public media funding.

It's interesting to note how Wilson-Raybould claimed that she was offered cover through favourable media coverage if she should grant a DPA to SNC Lavalin. That raises grave concerns about the freedom of the press in Canada.

While we can certainly debate the merits and demerits of public media funding in Canada, it would seem to me that at the very least, we ought to put an end to direct public funding of media. If we must provide public media funding, I'd propose a media-voucher program that would issue a media voucher to each resident over age of fifteen for himself and for any dependent that he could then use to subscribe to the participating media of his choice. By putting media funding in the hands of consumers rather than producers would remove the power of the government to unduly influence the media.

Oh what an IDIOT SOLUTION YOU OFFER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!


Offering up media vouchers to Cdns will SOLVE NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


How will handing out FREE MONEY to Cdns RESOLVE ANYTHING????????????????????


We are ALREADY overloaded with debt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Cdns are increasingly SHUNNING main stream media because it is too often does NOT represent them in any real way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The problem is NOT REALLY WITH MEDIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The problem is with FAKE NEWS and the Soviet Socialist LIE-beral minded politicians and their allies that influence our news and persuade people to TURN IT OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


You CANNOT make people pay attention to stuff they dont like!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!


As witness..............just look at the number of LIE-berals on this site who openly boats of not reading my posts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The truth is that people do watch some main stream media....................


and then quickly DISMISS much of it as being nothing more than LIE-beral propaganda!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!


And LIE-beral propaganda is a WASTE OF TIME since it has all been EXPOSED for what it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How illiterate of you! I did say that we can discuss whether the government should fund media at all. I was just saying that if it must fund it, then how best to fund it. I personally think we should cut media funding completely, but that wasn't the point of the thread. Any literate could have gathered that from the OP.

HOW VERY DECEPTIVE OF YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


You are suggesting that the LIE-beral version of Soviet Pravda style limitation of free speech

should be turned into a FREE GIVE AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


How very SOVIET and utterly IRRESPONSIBLE OF YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals have been searching for decades for a way to CURTAIL our freedom of speech.................


and lets face it THAT IS EXACTLY what our LIE-beral sponsored Human Rights Kangaroo Courts are set up to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals consider it THEIR RIGHT to punish us for hurting the feelings of THEIR FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS!!!!!!!!!!!






Here is another article illustrating the scale and scope of LIE-beral religious hypocrisy. With some comments of my own in brackets):

Malala in Lalaland

By Tarek Fatah, Toronto Sun. First posted: Tuesday, April 18, 2017 05:31 PM EDT | Updated: Tuesday, April 18, 2017 05:36 PM EDT

Two aspects of Malala Yousafzai’s speech delivered to a packed House of Commons April 12 were notable.

The first was her failure to mention Stephen Harper, let alone thank the former prime minister who was behind the move to grant her honorary Canadian citizenship.

(The name of Harper is anathema to LIE-berals anyway and he may also be viewed harshly by Muslims as he was prepared to deal aggressively with Muslim terrorists operating in Canada- a SHARP contrast to LIE-berals who actively court those who would attack us by allowing almost unrestricted entry to refugees from United States and by RESTORING Cdn citizenship to CONVICTED TERRORISTS such as the leader of the Toronto 18! LIE-beral concern for national security is so low they plan to order immigration judges to rubber stamp mass refugee applications without the bother of doing ANY security investigation into the back ground of the new comers! All is well just so long as the new arrivals who have been fast tracked into Cdn citizenship VOTE LIE-beral-in exchange for that preferential treatment!)

But it was what Malala said about Muslims and Islam that was both inaccurate and lacking in total honesty.

Referring to the 2014 killing of Canadian soldier Cpl. Nathan Cirillo by Muslim radical Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, Malala said: “The man who attacked Parliament Hill called himself a Muslim — but he did not share my faith. ... I am a Muslim and I believe that when you pick up a gun in the name of Islam and kill innocent people, you are not a Muslim anymore.”

The problem is Malala’s words, while eloquent, are in conflict with the reality of today, and incompatible with 1,400 years of Islamic history.

Yet it drew applause from the audience, hungry for any medicine that would dull the pain caused by the growing cancer of Islamic terrorism.

That said, when it comes to Islamic history, someone might have asked Malala about the 17th century Ottoman Caliphate’s siege at the Gates of Vienna, or perhaps the 11th century plundering of India by invading Islamic armies of Central Asia.

But since she is all but caged by her PR handlers, the media seldom get to ask her tough questions.

For example, would Malala say the Arab invasions of Persia, Jerusalem, Damascus and Egypt, “had nothing to do with Islam”?

How about the slaughter of Prophet Muhammad’s very own family? Or the assassinations of three of the first four caliphs of Islam by Muslims?

(Asking about and quibbling over various versions of Islam is like arguing over the Catholic Spanish Inquisition and the quarrels with Jews and Protestants. It is not the religion that is to blame; it is the interpretation! And currently a good many Muslims interpret their religion in terms of fire and swords and death! With our LIE-berals SCORNING anybody who wants the radicals weeded out for our safety! Muslims will not be suitable as Cdn citizen until they have made peace with the larger world they are hell bent on destroying!)

Within hours of Malala’s speech, a young Muslim journalism student inspired by Karl Marx and Che Guevara, from Malala’s ancestral Swat region of Pakistan, was lynched.

A Muslim mob of university students accused Mashal Khan Yusufzai of being an Islamophobe. Because he was a Muslim, he had thus, in their view, committed blasphemy.

The 23-year old student was shot, beaten to a pulp and was about to be burned before police intervened, while the bloodthirsty crowd shouted “Allah O Akbar”.

Earlier in the day, as Malala spoke in Ottawa, all MPs, including 12 Muslims who had voted for Pakistan-born MP Iqra Khalid’s motion M-103 against “Islamophobia”, cheered.

When I asked them to comment on the “anti-Islamophobia” lynching in Pakistan, not one responded, not even the three born in that region.

(I have said before that we are NOT well served by foreign born Members of parliament. In these dangerous times the MP job should ONLY be open to those who are born here and committed to staying here and supporting OUR values! Johnny come lately types who come here only for money and who will probably leave for greener pastures as soon as things get awkward should NEVER gain power or influence in our govt!)

(WE would not let firebrand Reverend Ian Paisley in here because he would incite hate of Catholics. We deported dual citizen/Cdn/German Ernst Zundel because he spoke lies about the Jewish Holocaust- so WHY then should we be letting in RABID Muslims? Other than because LIE-berals are BUYING Muslim VOTES!)

If there was any more evidence needed to show how M-103 can be misused as a tool against secular Muslims commenting critically on Islam, Mashal Yusufzai’s death provided it.

What is required from us Muslims is a bit of truth and honesty.

Malala and the rest of us should face the reality of what our Qur’an says when confronting Kaafirs -infidels and Islamophobes, including Muslims like Mashal, who were labelled as such.

Qur’an (47:4) “When you meet the Unbelievers- Kufaar, non-Muslims in fight, smite at their necks; At length, when you have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly on them.”

Quran (8:12) “Remember your Lord inspired the angels: ‘I am with you: give firmness to the Believers- Muslims: I will instil terror into hearts of the Kufaar. Smite them above their necks, and smite all of their finger tips off them’.”

It is time for all of us to be truthful instead of living in Lalaland.

Tarek Fatah

The war of civilizations continues in Europe

In the latest terrorist attacks, a bomb blew up inside a St. Petersburg subway station, killing 14 Russians, barely a fortnight after a jihadi killed four people in London, England.

(Muslims are at least as dangerous to each other as they are to us! With so many people in the world desperate for a better life-I ask again WHY we should bother kissing up to hate filled Muslims when there are others-calmer-quieter-more peaceful- and thus more deserving- seeking our aid?)

Media vouchers would reduce at least somewhat how much control the government would have over the media. At the very least, it would reduce the amount of control the government would have in deciding who gets the funding. While it could set parameters for participation (like saying that participating media must limit itself to rated-G content for example), it would need to let the market take its course beyond that.

What a wonderful idea Comrade!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Just what we need!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Yet another huge mob of civil service union Hogs handing out more BORROWED MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And why would Cdns not jump at the chance to let LIE-berals and their union Hog allies run more things in our socialist LIE-beral utopia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LOOK how well Wyne-bag LIE-berals did with auto insurance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!


Ontari-owe drivers have the least number of accidents and thanks to LIE-beral meddling we also pay the highest premiums!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And LIE-berals offered us a 15 percent savings on our insurance premiums!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But........GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!


LIE-berals NEGLECTED TO MENTION that FIFTY PERCENT CUT to accident benefits that came with the 15 percent saving STRETCH GOAL that LIE-berals NEVER REACHED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Main stream Cdn news media is losing out because it is using an OBSOLETE philosophical model!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Too much of our main stream media is LIE-beral friendly and not willing to tell the full truth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Consider the Kashetchewan "water tragedy" in which the native reserve ran out of money to repair either its sewage treatment plant or its drinking water plant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And natives cried "GOVT NEGLECT" to our news media!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Natives and media such as Toronto Red Star newspaper tried to blame the mess on Harper!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Because of the broken drinking water plant -RAW SEWAGE was coming out of the local taps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Because the sewage treatment plant was broken- there was NO treatment of black water available!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


With natives and news media scorning the govt for building a sewage treatment plant UP river from the drinking water plant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


So that sewage could flow direct to the drinking water plant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



After a week of LIE-beral Fake News designed to make Harper LOOK BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Red Star was goaded into a HONEST investigation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!


And discovered: that ALL the plant repair money HAD BEEN WASTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Sending a native hockey team plus a whole pile of parent supporters to California for a hockey tournament!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And a GOOD TIME was had by all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Lots of good food AND DRINKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !


PLENTY OF DOWN TIME for using govt cash at the casinos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!


How is it Harpers fault that natives are CARELESS and wasteful????????????????????????


And what about that allegation of building the drinking water plant down river from the sewage plant??????????????????


MORE LIE-beral Fake News!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!


The drinking water plant HAD BEEN UP RIVER from the sewage plant ..................BEFORE some Beavers built a dam and reversed the flow of water in the river- sending it over into a tributary..............with the result that sewage ended up flowing direct to the drinking water plant with every toilet flush!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And yet these descendants of legendary nomadic travellers could not be bothered walking 6 km across open tundra to find out why their SH+T was suddenly flowing BACK INTO TOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



From that Beaver dam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!


Natives used to EAT BEAVER TAILS.....................now they just TELL Beaver TALES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Toronto spent a week scorning Harper all over the front page...................



and then spent about 30 seconds admitting that their previous week of coverage did not quite tell the truth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And you think GIVING LIE-berals greater control over our media will somehow benefit Cdns??????????????????????????


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!


You are just another damned LIE-beral spewing MORE propaganda!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

'TPTB' already 'own' it so that is the starting point. Wishes do not work in the real world. What does work is taking an honest look at the stories being published. That means you take them apart and the truth and the lie will end up being in two different piles. You should know which pile is the most important one as far as you having the most accurate view of 'the big picture'.
Nikki H. does an impressive job at exposing what a 'corporate lie' looks like. In her case Syria was the 'bad guy' and her boss, the USA, was the 'good guy' and the lie was told at her UN speeches. A real crime against humanity was referenced as the US made sure there was a crime and she would get all the details down right until it came time to identify the criminal and then she would get it wrong 100% of the time and then quickly move into another issue.

As much as I want to, I'm still not counting him out. There's a ton of low information voters, partisans, and people who just don't care what he does who will vote for him no matter how low he crawls.

At this point, my feeling is that this is election is more of a metric on Canadian voters and their tolerance and acceptance of corruption, virtue signalling, and pandering more than it is a metric on Trudeau and his performance. Some were blissfully ignorant of exactly who Trudeau was last go around...not this time. This time we know exactly who Trudeau is and it's up to voters to accept it or reject it.

If Canadian voters re-elect Trudeau and give him another mandate, then Canadians as a whole deserve exactly what we get.

Is that the 'good Soros' or the 'bad Soros'? For all his wealth he is no so good looking and his resume suggest he should have retired about the age of 30.

JT also sent a donation to the Clinton Foundation even after the allegations of 'pay to play' surfaced.
If JT only won because he 'wasn't Harper' them maybe Canadians should look at the loonies who are in power and they might vote ion Military Law themselves until 'who is who' is clearly defined as Canadians should be offered something better than 'bad and worse' as far as political parties to choose from. Perhaps the ladies should step up to the plate using the gender issue up from.

Considering the mental balance of the above post and the consequences that should be attached to it why are the Libs the ones facing criticism when they came into power in 2015, 4 full years after the World Bank began their investigation of the same company for the same types of charges, 3 years after the World Bank blacklisted them and all the companies they had been doing business with.
That leaves a period from 2006-2015 when criminals in Montreal operated at the highest levels on the globe yet were immune from any condemnation (let alone criminal prosecution) from the Conservatives, who are publicly said to have no real support in Quebec, that it is a Liberal strong hold when it was a Liberal Government that brought SNC into the full light of day. (with all the spin the Cons could apply)
'Everybody' seems quite intent on letting that part get swept under the rugs. Not gonna happen, what is going to happen is the hypocrites will be shown to be hypocrites.

What does that say about the supporters of the Cons if the Leader they had was used as their greatest liability. Firts you have to show that Harper was bucking the global leaders and was doing what was right for Canada rather than going along with what was right fot the IMF and her friends.

The bolded part are talking points from the last election, from the other side and it seems to have worked for the Libs quite well. You know JT after just a few years of seeing him walk around at the end of a long line of people that are more important than he is.To do that the Cons have to dismiss how badly they ran the place in the 10 years before that. Couldn't have been all that well if the Libs won on a platform. "We are not Harper and the Cons'.

Not that I want to debate past PM's (unlike you). To use Trudeau's line....because it's 2015, man. But yes, we absolutely deserved Harper. By the time he won his majority, he had led the country for 7 years in minority governments...something not achieved by a centre-right party in half a century previous. When he won a majority government, there was no question who he was or what he stood for.


Trudeau on the other hand....4 years and he'll be lucky to get out with his self-proclaimed dignity, forget about his honour.
