Globe allows editor column space to declare Liberal nomination candidacy

freeland

You can’t get much more unethical than the Globe and Mail giving their ex-senior editor, Chrystia Freeland column space to announce her Liberal Party nomination bid:

Over the past few years, as I have been working through these issues for my book, I have felt their urgency ever more strongly. Diagnosing the problem is an important first step, but it isn’t enough. We need to do something about it.

The place for me to do that is at home, in Canada. As the lucky beneficiary of the Canadian public education system, Canadian health care, and Canadian scholarships, I owe our country everything. (see here)

Freeland was working at the Globe’s sister company Reuter’s out of New York and arrogantly like Ignatieff before her, thinks we need her now after she chose the US first.

Update: Globe’s Editor-in-chief John Stackhouse sends out the ‘Public Editor’ Sylvia Stead to run defence for him allowing Freeland op-ed space (see here)

    I stopped reading this paper years ago because of this type of thing.

    Another case of opportunity knocks and the opportunist comes home to offer services to their beloved country just when they need them most.

    I sense this prodigal daughter has made her first mistake, noted in Paul Wells’ article, when she self-identified as an American. “Obama pointed to some of the familiar political drivers of this shift — weaker unions and tax cuts at the top. But, to his credit, he also noted the structural factors — in particular, technological change and globalization — that have helped hollow out the middle class. These are the heart of the problem, because they are both largely positive and hard to change. We can’t stop them, and most of us don’t want to — but we surely do want to reverse their devastating consequences for the middle class. — Freeland, two days ago” http://www2.macleans.ca/2013/07/28/chrystia-freeland-and-toronto-centre/

    Incest out of the closet is what I call it. Many have long been aware of the incestuous relationship between our MSM and the Liberals, even though it was denied.

    She is the classic Liberal….someone who is still living in the USA coming back because they are friends of the Liberal-Toronto inner circle. What will the Libs do if the PM sets an election date this by-election before she moves back?

    So much for Trudeau having an open nomination process. Trudeau is parachuting her in from outside the country.
