Little Democracy Left in Canada

Corporations Run Our Governments – Own Our Media – Control Trudeau

Our problems are deeper than Homelessness and High House Prices and Health Care and Pipelines. These things – and many more – are just ‘the symptoms’. Our real problem is that our Democracy and our Media are owned by Corporate Canada. It is this problem that underlies all the others.

Canadians now have very little voice in how our country is governed. Our Politicians and our Governments don’t work for us. They work for Corporate Canada. Our top politicians have sold us out in exchange for nice jobs, good salaries, and great pensions. Those politicians are doing very well – we pay. One Small Example: 80% of Canadians want ‘GMO foods’ labeled. But Corporate Canada doesn’t want them labeled. So they aren’t. GMO foods are poisonous and a major environmental threat. But we have to eat them because the people who run Canada don’t care what we want. We Canadians are irrelevant in our own country, and THAT is what must change if we want to solve our problems.

The Site C Issue: The Tale of Two Voting Systems

By Richard Habgood.

BC’S Site C dam is a very contentious issue. On one side, you have Premier Clark and Energy Minister Bennett, who are determined to build a dam that they say is necessary for future electrical needs and to power an LNG industry. Opponents contend that if BC does need the power, we can get it from less expensive renewable resources and without infringing on First Nations rights or destroying farmland that could feed a million people.

So how does the electoral voting system play into this scenario?

First Past the Post:

The 2013 BC Provincial election, using our first past the post (FPTP ) voting system, saw the Liberals win 44% of the popular vote but in doing so they gained 58% majority of seats in the Legislature. BC’s FPTP voting system awarded the provincial Liberals a “false majority ” government with a minority of votes. And because they gained a slim majority of seats, they have governed as if they have a mandate to do what they want and build Site C.

Bell Media and GMO

G M O FOODS: Why would Bell Media say there is NO evidence of danger when there IS evidence of danger?

Aug. 31, 2016:  CFAX Radio in Victoria is owned by Bell Media. On August 29th, one of their hosts said there is Zero Evidence GMO foods are harmful in any way.

That’s fine, except there IS evidence GMOs are harmful.  (see bottom)

The host certainly doesn’t have to believe the evidence GMOs are harmful. He can talk about ‘industry evidence’ saying GMOs are safe. But how can he say there is NO evidence GMOs are harmful – when there IS evidence. Continue reading

Canada’s Media Undermines Democracy

By Controlling What We Are Told.

(Aug. 18, 2016) Here is one example: The Globe and Mail warned on August 15 that Canada will lose thousands of Auto jobs if we don’t give more money to General Motors and the rest. In the story a Union leader talk about ‘unprecedented’ impacts, while the industry itself says they need more money from Canada, or jobs will go. (Auto parts makers urge funding revamp: p. B1)

Now Here’s the Manipulation: The story talks about two choices … Give the Industry Millions – or – Lose the Jobs. But there are choices The Globe doesn’t tell us about – because Corporate Canada doesn’t want us knowing about these choices.

The Globe story doesn’t talk about the Auto Pact – or getting out of NAFTA.

The Auto Pact: The Canada / U.S. Auto Pact was in place from about 1965 until ended by NAFTA after 1994. The Auto Pact ‘said’ that for every car SOLD in Canada, one car had to be MADE in Canada. So when Canadians bought cars … cars were made in Canada. And Canadians got jobs. That was the Auto Pact. It gave us jobs. But it DIDN’T maximize corporate profit. So Corporate Canada and their Politicians and Media got rid of it. Continue reading

Can We Believe Latest RCMP Terror Bombing Story?

Two weeks after one RCMP Bombing Story turns out
to be a pack of lies … the Media gives us another one
with no questions asked!

August 11, 2016: We now have another RCMP Terror Bombing story in Canada. The Corporate Media AGAIN believes every word the RCMP tells them … and the Media is again putting the words ‘Muslim – Terror – Bombing’ over and over into the minds of all Canadians. And they are telling us how much we NEED Bill C51 to protect us from this terror.

And this is exactly what the Media did with the other terror story – the one a BC Supreme Court Judge just said is a lie. Based on that fake RCMP story from July 2013, the Media has told Canadians the words ‘Muslim – Terror – Bombing’ for almost three years – and told us how much we need Bill C51. The Corporate Media linked Muslim Canadians for 3 long years to a ‘terror attack’ that Canadian Muslims had NOTHING to do with because the attack was completely done by the RCMP. And the Media and the RCMP and CSIS used the RCMP attack to push for Bill C51. Which gives them even more powers to betray us. Continue reading

Community TV and the CRTC “Hearing”

The following email was sent to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC):

To whom it may concern:

Many residents of our community do not want to have cable TV because it is full of consumerism, trash culture and its high cost. Still, in a democratic society, these citizens should have the right to manage, produce and view their own Community TV.

But when the CRTC says: “Cable companies will continue to have the stewardship of the community channel on behalf of their subscribers as they have for decades. The CRTC was not persuaded that this successful model should be changed.” … The CRTC shows little care about these citizens and their ability to take on the responsibility of their community TV, and citizens are told to accept that giant cable companies which dominate all the air waves and communications are also here to manage our community TV.

Media Lying to Canadians about RCMP Fake Bombing of B.C. Legislature

Media linked bombing to Canada’s Muslim Community – which had NOTHING to do with it.

(July 31, 2016) The RCMP and Federal Government created a fake ‘terror bombing’ in Victoria BC in 2013. Then they and the media linked the attack to Canada’s Muslim Community, which had NOTHING to do with it. The ‘attack’ was planned and carried out by the RCMP. Nothing would have happened without the RCMP. That’s what Judge Catherine Bruce ruled last week. The Harper Government is also implicated.

Since the ‘bombing’, our Government and Media have spread fear, anger, hate, and division in Canada.  Muslim Canadians were the main targets … but ALL of us were the targets of this evil act. Our rulers WANT to divide us and distract us from the real issues we face. And they do it, by ‘creating another enemy’. How many thousands of times were the words ‘Terror, Bombing, and Muslim’ put together in the same sentence by our Media and the RCMP? Continue reading

Murder in France

We ARE Under Attack … but by Whom??

(July 21, 2016) Since 9/11, so much has been a False Flag or a Lie. I think 9/11 itself was a False Flag supported by the most powerful people in the U.S. That’s why neither the U.S. nor Canadian Governments had an honest investigation. And that’s why the Corporate Media will never ask the questions that would blow the lid off the official 9/11 lies. Thousands of innocent people were killed on 9/11, and those deaths led to millions more deaths in the Middle East. That was The Corporate Plan and they carried it out and led us into a disaster that seems to work for them.

A U.S. War OF Terror: The destruction of Afghanistan and Iraq was based on lies. Those nations were destroyed by a U.S. led War OF Terror. Canada participated. This War of Terror was sold to us by our corrupt Media. Libya was then destroyed by a NATO attack led by a Canadian General. And now Syria. Continue reading
