As commented on already, the Canadian government is poised to increase financial support to Canadian media enterprise.
It should be obvious that government support of media is an incubator for tyranny.
Yet, as revealed in this pathetic bit of journalism the issue isn’t entirely clear.
Overlooking the results of a poll that shows forty-one percent of those polled opposed increased funding of this nature, the article rambles on to cover the seemingly harmless issue of the government financing the “independence” of Canadian media enterprise.
Such is the state of the “watchdog” we citizens have to inform and protect us from the inevitable excesses of government power.
I would rather have the news of the grapevine than the sanitized versions delivered by government financed media.
