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.

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.

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

Trudeau Gives Canada’s Community Television Money to Shaw, Rogers, Bell …

About $80 Million – half of Canada’s Community TV budget – will go to
these poor corporations who need it so much

(July 8, 2016): Community TV is the one place on television not completely controlled by Corporate Canada. Community TV is where The News – not just ‘The Corporate News’ – can still be spoken. At least Sometimes.

Unfortunately, the federal government allows big cable companies like Rogers, Shaw, and Videotron to ‘control’ our Community TV stations, so things are not as good as they could be. But if it was ‘freed up’, Community TV could help transform our country. Media is important in a democracy because citizens need honest facts and information so we can make intelligent decisions in our own best interests. People also need access to a variety of ideas and perspectives about important issues. The Corporate Media gives us none of this. On all important issues, only ‘The Official Story’ is allowed.

Community Television allows average citizens to be on TV and talk about all the things the corporations won’t allow in ‘their’ media. So Community TV can act as a ‘balance’ to the tremendous power of the Corporate Owned Media. And we Canadians desperately need that balance at this time in our history when so very much is at risk.

But instead, Justin Trudeau is taking away the money Community TV needs. And he’s giving it to his friends in Corporate Canada. Continue reading

Christy Clark Closes Vancouver Schools To Pay For Corporate Tax Cuts

But Globe and Mail Story doesn’t say that …

(June 29, 2016):  Public Education in BC is under attack as Premier Christy Clark closes schools to pay for Corporate Tax Cuts.  But Canada’s Corporate Owned Media won’t say that because journalists are not allowed to report the truth.  Only the Corporate Truth is allowed in Canada’s media.

A June 21 Globe and Mail story says the Vancouver School Board is looking at closing 12 schools to deal with a $27 million deficit.  The Globe tells us closing these schools would save about $9 million a year  This is about 1 / 1000 of one year’s profit of the Royal Bank ($10 Billion). But the Globe won’t talk about taxing the banks to give more money to our public schools. That’s an idea they do NOT want people to ever think about, so they never mention it.  In Canada saying ‘Tax the Banks’ is not allowed. Continue reading

Are Homelessness and High House Prices Two Parts of the Same Plan?

Would Corporate Canada create a housing shortage to push up prices and make a fortune?
While ‘the corporate media’ remains silent…

(May 27, 2016):    I think the Billionaires who run this country have deliberately created a shortage of homes in many of our cities.  The housing shortage has pushed up prices and put millions of Canadians deeply into debt, while creating huge profits for the 1%.  The shortage has also created a homeless problem that is destabilizing our cities and harming us all.  And this is not by accident, this IS the corporate plan.

There is little available housing in many of our cities. So thousands of people at the bottom of the economic ladder have been forced onto the streets.  These are Canadians who don’t have enough money to compete for a place to live.  In the past we had enough homes for everyone.  But now we don’t.  Why?

Here in Victoria BC, the Media constantly blame the homeless and pit them against ‘the rest of us’.  But the media NEVER tell us why we have this problem. Continue reading

Did RCMP Fake Terror Bombing To Blame Muslims?

On Canada Day 2013, the RCMP ‘faked’ a Terror Bombing in Victoria B.C. The Media then ‘blamed’ Canada’s Muslim Community – who had nothing to do with it.

(May 9, 2016): The RCMP carried out a fake Terror Bombing in Victoria BC on July 1, 2013. Canada’s Media then told us that Muslims had done this terrorist act. Was this ‘operation’ planned and carried out not to ‘prevent’ a bombing, but to fake a bombing and then use that act to blame Muslims and create fear and division in our country?

A phony bombing was carried out by the RCMP. There is no real question about that. And then the Media linked the bombing to Canada’s Muslim Community. Why did Canada’s Corporate Media so happily participate in blaming this ‘terror bombing’ on an entire community of innocent people. The ‘Official Story’ we are being told seemed absurd almost from the beginning. And yet the media repeated it over and over, as if it were ‘really true’. Were journalists told to report the story in a certain way? Continue reading
