In August 2015, the Canadian Media Guild, a union representing CBC journalists, became a registered third party for the purpose of increasing taxpayer funding of the CBC in advance of the 2015 federal election.
On October, 19th, 2015, Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau became prime minister of Canada. Together, the coordination of these two events were to shape mainstream media content for the following decade, if not on a permanent basis.
From a high-level perspective, advertising-based revenue had all but fallen off the charts. According to an article from Forbes published in March, 2023, “the global ad marketplace for print over the past six years, has been cut in half.”
That’s a major chunk of money, as the situation in Canada remained consistent with what was occurring in the United States.
Enter the Liberal government of Canada, who set out to remedy falling revenues for CBC, CTV, Globe & Mail and other establishment media outlets. Important it is to note that when we say “other,” we mean approximately 1500 media outlets from coast-to-coast[see .pdf]
According to a 2021 article from Canadaland.com, “Maclean’s, Postmedia and Black Press, Daily Hive, and Epoch Times benefited from ‘emergency funding’ the Trudeau government had provided during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Add to this over one thousand lesser-known, small-market media publications. Entirely comprehensive in nature, our ruling Trudeau government pulled a fast-one:
CAP pinpoint a fundamental transformation within the Canadian media industry. Press publications large and small neglected to pass the information on to the public. Why would they, when such an exercise would be an example of “shooting oneself in the foot.”
Back in 2013, Maclean’s published an article noting the influence that Quebecor, and it’s owner Pierre Karl Péladeau, have on the Quebec media system. The article noted that Quebecor behaves like a counterpart to the La Presse, owned by the Desmarais family.
The billionaire Desmarais family of Quebec are the founders of Canada-China Business Council, conduit for connection between the Liberal Party and the communist government of China.
In 2019, Kathy English, public editor for the Toronto Star, admitted that its publication had “failed to meet its journalistic standards by stating call for reporting fairly and accurately and reflecting the pertinent facts and diversity of views on matters of public debate.”
We pick up on a media transition that alludes general society to this day. Based on falling revenue intake, and in the interest of twisting press presentation in their favour, Trudeau’s Liberals influence over media content began to skyrocket.
Maclean’s received $313,000 from the emergency fund, in addition to their yearly grant of $1.3 million. Postmedia received $355,871, given out to 21 news outlets, and $946,140 provided to 27 news outlets.
Hidden from general knowledge is funding for Chinese media in Canada:
Ming Pao Newspapers had $928,510 distributed to 10 news outlets. Sing Tao Newspapers had $199,192 split between two news outlets. Their publication is known for publishing pro-CCP articles.
We begin to sleuth together the condition of media in “post-modern” Canada. Over the course of a decade, mainstream media presentation has undergone its most dramatic transition in the past 100 years.
Trudeau said nothing of the sort, preferring to hide it all away for personal and Liberal Party benefit. Major media went along for the ride.
Result? A biased, pro-Liberal, pro-China establishment media controlled by government. What a revelation it is to discover that media in 2023 exists in a similar dynamic to its structure in communist China.
Our eyes are opened. Media no longer present objective news. Rather than unbiased presentation, the goal transfers to one of influence– as it exists within authoritarian and communist societies.
We consider the goal of government within these societies. At the top of the list is control of the people. For example, if government wished to create social unrest, media can provide the necessary content for the venture.
Why would government want to do such a thing? The answer is found in socialist revolutions of history. Mao Tse Tung did it during the Communist Revolution. Joseph Stalin, Fidel Castro as well. Fascist propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbles was an expert in this regard.
Justin Trudeau? Likely his brain is too stunted to conceptualize such an agenda, so others have done it for him.
Social conflict in all its formats is stronger within Canadian society than ever before. Middle East, “Islamophobia,” LGBT, Euthanasia, transgenderism, Sikh nationalism, anti-Jewish sentiment, “systemic racism,” Critical Race Theory, anti-Colonialism.
Every bit of it stirred up in a melting pot of social degeneration. To which we pose a salient question:
Has Canadian media working toward an advancement of social harmony? Or rather, are they currently indulging in exacerbation of inter-community conflict in society?
Cultural Action Party leave it to readers to arrive at their own conclusion.
