Last week Canadian Press issued a correction after I complained about their reporter Stephanie Levitz omitting that the Mowat Centre was loaded with Liberals including Trudeau’s puppet-master Gerald Butts (see here) yet once again a reporter of theirs does it again.
An alarm goes off in my head every time I read about some group complaining in the media about PM Stephen Harper as this World Federalist Movement was to CP’s Mike Blanchfield on Harper speaking at the UN:
A broad coalition of former diplomats and public servants is questioning whether Stephen Harper’s return to the United Nations this week is politically motivated. (see here)
So I took a look at their board of directors and immediately these names confirmed my suspicion:
Warren Allmand: Ex-Liberal MP
Bill Blaikie: Ex-NDP MP
Ian Waddell: Ex-NDP MP and BC NDP MLA
Errol Mendes: Ex-Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff adviser
And of course Mendes is one of the biggest Harper-haters in Ottawa.
I’m sure I could find more partisan activities if I cared to look into the others on this board but these four should have been enough for Blanchfield to let his readers know who was running this organization.
I’ll be filing another complaint with CP and will update you if they respond.
Also: See earlier post on CP reporter Murray Brewster using Mendes as one of his story’s sources here.
Update: I have now filed a complaint with CP.
