A recent poll from Abacus Data informs us that more than half of those interviewed agreed with the statement “official government accounts of events can’t be trusted.”
Reading through Abacus commentary on poll results reveals what astute Canadians should expect– subtle and not-so subtle bias toward our ruling Liberal government:
“These numbers point to a challenge that is bigger, and more influential in the political life of Canada than might have been expected. It’s harder for people to agree on what to do to solve collective problems if they don’t trust the basic information on offer by official and news sources. The challenge facing the Conservative Party is particularly acute.”
In response, we look to the source of a decline in public trust of government. The Conservatives are not the number one source, for a simple reason: they are not the ruling government. For the past 6-plus years, the role has been filled by the Liberal Party. Therefore, by default, they are the main governmental body responsible for a breakdown in trust between the people and political leaders.
CAP have no idea what Abacus are driving at when they say it hard for people to “agree upon what to do.” Which people are they referring to? Does “people” mean government, as opposed to the general public? If the latter, what difference does it make if people agree or disagree? Under the rule of Justin Trudeau, in no manner do people have an influence on government decision-making. This, fellow patriots, would be an exercise in democratic process. After nearly seven years of privilege as prime minister, the thought would likely give Trudeau a skin rash.
Additionally, Abacus informs us that 44% of Canadians polled believe that “much of the messaging being received from Canadian media is false.”
52% don’t trust government, 44% don’t trust media. The discrepancy belies a fundamental truth: if fair was fair, the distrust would be a 50/50 split. Since PM Trudeau donned his Canadian crown, his Liberals have funded mainstream media to the extent that a business partnership now exists between the two. If not for CBC, Globe & Mail and the rest, PM Trudeau would have been put out to political pasture long ago.
What CAP are driving at is simple in conception: as far as the Liberals and Liberal media are concerned, it is their own damn fault. The more they attempt to propagandize Canadians, the more public trust erodes. Dress it up anyway you want to, but the cause and effect principle still applies. And dress it up is exactly what Abacus attempt to do:
“As with trust in news organizations, those with no post-secondary education, Alberta residents and those on the right showed markedly higher levels of mistrust in government.”
Translation: those who distrust media are stupid. Uneducated and backward, the meat heads wouldn’t know honest politics if they drove over them in downtown Ottawa.
CAP refuse to concur. Our take is that the so-called educated happen to be the so-called brainwashed. Those who have sat through four years of White Colonialism 101 and Gender Politics: Justice Ruth Ginsberg Never Wore A Mini-Skirt have been conditioned toward the ultimate social illness: hatred for your own country.
“Majorities of People’s Party, Conservative and Green Party voters indicate distrust. Those on the left and Liberal voters show higher levels of trust.”
So those on the Woke Left are more gullible than other Canadians. What do they want, a medal for it? The real, baseline reason for public distrust of government and the press is found in the last entities to be held responsible: government and media.
A total of 52% is not a landslide, by any means. What it does tell Canadians is the longer the Justin Trudeau-Woke Media Follies continue, the less the general public trust our controlling institutions.
Are the unwoke of society waking up to the reality of Trudeau’s pseudo-communist agenda? If not for media obfuscation, awakening from the Liberal-Globalist utopian dream would have occurred back in ancient political history. For example, in 2016.
