CTV News and Trudeau don’t know refugees can’t vote in Canadian elections


In a torqued-up story over an audit of refugees which Prime Minister Stephen Harper has basically called a lie, CTV News ran this paragraph as their lede:

ctv refugee voting

But of course according to Elections Canada, you must be a Canadian citizen to vote:

How is it possible CTV News room staff and someone campaigning to become Canada’s PM don’t know refugees can’t vote?

My complaint to the CBC Ombudsman regarding Mary Walsh equating Harper to Hitler

My complaint filed today with the CBC Ombudsman:

While I can appreciate that the CBC considers it within its mandate to report on events relating to the current federal election that are light-hearted or entertaining, I believe the CBC News Newfoundland and Labrador crossed a severe line of good taste and objectivity when it chose to embed a video of “Marg Delahunty” (Mary Walsh) in a October 7, 2015 story on the comedian’s election antics (“’Save’ Stephen Harper, Marg Delahunty says in protest video”).

In the embedded video, Walsh calls Stephen Harper by a variety of names including “Stasi Steve” and “Herr Harper” intended to make allusions between the Conservative leader and communist or Nazi regimes. These are very serious, ugly, and possibly slanderous slurs to be levelled against any politician and I believe the CBC should not have given forum to them, particularly without any sort of comment in the accompanying article.

Mary Walsh should be barred from appearing on the CBC until such time as a review is completed on how the producers and CBC management will ensure Mary Walsh and others appearing on CBC never use these types of slurs again to personally attack and if she is reinstated, be forced to issue an apology.

Update: My complaint has been accepted by the CBC Ombudsman and has been passed along to the CBC

Video: CBC’s Mary Walsh calls PM Stephen Harper “Stasi Steve” and “Herr Harper”

It wasn’t surprising that the CBC dragged out the tried, old unfunny Marg Delahunty skit to campaign against Stephen Harper during the election but what she said in the video posted by the CBC (see here) was very shocking:

Pay special attention at the 1:20 min mark as Mary Walsh calls Harper “Stasi Steve, Herr Harper, Dear Leader, Stevil”:

The Stasi were the East German secret police.

Herr Harper is a take-off the lunatic Left use to equate Harper to Adolph Hitler.

Dear Leader is a take-off the lunatic Left use to equate Harper to North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong-il.

And Stevil speaks for itself.

Whoever allowed this video to be posted on the CBC website should be immediately fired along with Walsh.




Liberals break election laws by setting up campaign table outside voting station?

Elections Canada;

This photo is making its rounds on social media apparently depicts the University of Ottawa Young Liberals handing out campaign literature outside an Elections Canada voting station:

If true this would of course break the Elections Act and Elections Canada needs to investigate, immediately.

Trudeau confirms Liberals would start spying on Canadians, Media Party go silent

vice trudeau

In a stunning revelation during an interview with Vice Canada yesterday, Liberal leader Justin Trudeau was asked about his party’s platform which includes the ability for the Communication Security Establishment to spy on Canadians:

According to the party’s official election platform, released earlier in the day, an elected Liberal government would “limit Communications Security Establishment’s powers by requiring a warrant to engage in the surveillance of Canadians.”

VICE News originally reported that meant the Liberals intended to give the Communication Security Establishment (CSE) new powers, since the agency is currently prohibited from “directing” surveillance at Canadians for domestic purposes

Asked several times during a special town hall in Toronto hosted by VICE Canada to clarify his stance, Trudeau emphasized that CSE would be subjected to oversight.

“We have to recognize that there are new threats in this world that we have to have the tools to [deal with],” said Trudeau (see here)

The press would go apocalyptic if the Conservatives had stated in their platform that they would allow Canadians to be spied on but there isn’t a single mention of this today from any of the mainstream media. How many articles and protests have we seen on outrage over Bill C-51?

Another perfect example how the Media Party will protect Trudeau no matter what.
