The role of the press in a democracy was based on it being politically non-partisan. It is the only business protected by the constitution because it is supposed to serve and inform the people as fair arbiters, as an integral part of the checks and balance of the political sphere.
It has transgressed so far from it’s purpose that you can hardly find a non agenda driven unbiased story any more. The Canadian media has long idolized the US media but their copycat tactics have done us great harm.
The eco-radical anti-oil protesters are clinging to the National Energy Boards (NEB) ‘Environmental Assessments’ (EA) review process to propel their rage.
This is the focus of their Prime Minister Harper bashing mantra you are hearing.
Beware governments selling/privatizing public owned assets based on political philosophy. The BC Liberals promised not to sell BC Rail or privatize BC Hydro then did. Christy Clark was Gordon Campbell’s Deputy Premier 2001-2005 when selling of BC Rail and privatizing of BC Hydro schemes were devised.
‘Global Warming’ never happened so the eco-saviors changed the name to ‘Climate Change’. Since that became stale and nobody outside the religion is buying it, so the UN’s Rio+20 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, changed emphasis again for the big party, now it’s back to that tired old buzz phrase “Sustainable Development”.
Oilsands Developer Syncrude Canada is facing federal and provincial charges for failing to prevent approx. 500 ducks from landing on its recycling settling pond, where many of them died last April of 2008, at it’s Aurora North mining site.
Suppose you had a family with a dozen kids. Each child representing a Province or Territory, and the parents representing the Government, (played by ‘Pa’) and the Opposition, (played by ‘Ma’).
Ma and Pa disagreed with each other on almost everything, a rocky relationship at best, but it was arranged for the sake of the family to work as a unit, tolerate and try to respect each other. Pa being a fiscally responsible and slightly right of centre type. Ma being left of centre or further left if the occasion called for it and a bit of a carefree goodtime party doll most of the time.
