Does CP24 stand for Canadian Propaganda 24 hours a day?

Legacy media in collusion with Canadian government (federal, provincial and municipal) is tripling down on its efforts in Canada to control “mainstream” opinion.  In an article released by the Canadian Press, the brainwashing must begin from youth lest children discover that there are multiple sides of a story, usually found on the Inter… Read more

YouTube and Twitter are dropping subscribers and followers, and here’s why

CBC: Canada added 54,000 jobs last month. Reality: Canada lost nearly 100,000 productive jobs and replaced it with useless jobs

CBC recently published an intentionally vague article over the latest StatsCan report to paint a rosy economic picture for Canada and its government.

Canada’s Carbon Tax: Pay up or freeze to death

I am expecting fireplaces to gain in popularity as already financially pinched households attempt to keep warm in what has been a cold start to Winter for much of Canada.  Ironically, fires release carbon dioxide too. How will the government collect its tax for that?
