I want to show you three crazy stories that the CBC ran in the course of the past 24 hours. They show a pattern. And I want to tell you what that pattern means. And why it’s important.
First, here's a tweet from Ahmed Hussen, the Somali migrant who has now become Canada’s immigration minister:
As Canada ages, immigration expected to keep Alberta's workforce strong for decades. Why #ImmigrationMatters
He links to a CBC story:
There have been plenty of warnings about the looming impacts of Canada's aging labour force, but a new report suggests the working population in Alberta will remain relatively young — and become increasingly diverse — in the coming decades.
What "aging" workforce? Alberta has the youngest workforce in Canada.
And "diverse"? New immigrants from Somalia, Syria, Afghanistan or Pakistan are not going to fill highly skilled oil patch jobs, if they ever come back; more likely, the 200,000 or so people who were last laid off by those oilsands companies are going to be rehired again.
This story is such a work of fiction. It makes no sense.
Story number two is even weirder. Here's Catherine McKenna's tweet:
Doctors and medical professionals understand fighting climate change benefits our environment, our economy, and our health. While climate change is the greatest health threat of the century, climate action is the greatest health opportunity.
And of course it links to another CBC story, one accompanied by a big, horrible picture, just in case you need to see how bad carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases are in Canada.
Except the photo isn't from Canada, and that white and gray stuff in the sky isn't carbon dioxide. As the caption says, it's steam rising from coal-fired power plants in Bergheim, Germany — Europe's largest carbon dioxide source.
But the CBC uses that in their propaganda piece.
There'a a lot more wrong with this junk science "news story," as I'll show you TONIGHT.
Finally, my favourite CBC moment of all...
Now, every poll says is about to absolutely crush Rachel Notley and the NDP in next month’s election in Alberta.
But here's what the CBC has to say:
'Left with fines, charges and shame': Calgary political insider alleges voter fraud in UCP leadership campaign
Alberta's election commissioner has ruled that Hardyal Mann made irregular political contributions, and the Calgary political operative alleges the existence of a plan to commit voter fraud in order to secure the election of Jason Kenney as United Conservative Party leader — a controversy that's erupting in the midst of a provincial election.”
So this is about the fake candidate who was running just to attack Kenney’s rival, Brian Jean. And then defect to support Kenney. As I said in an earlier show, I think it’s gross, and I think a lot of conservatives do, too.
But the province is desperate to get rid of Notley. These stupid backroom games aren't stupid enough to grant the NDP one more second of power.
Now look closely at the bottom of this long story:
This team from CBC Calgary has been investigating allegations of wrongdoing in the UCP leadership campaign. Tips and correspondence can be sent in confidence to: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org. With files from Charles Rusnell and Jennie Russell
The CBC has put seven reporters on this file.
Do you think that the CBC has ever put seven reporters on an NDP scandal?
Do you think the CBC has seven reporters covering the SNC-Lavalin scandal of Trudeau? (Funny how they haven’t broken a single story about that — it’s all been private sector journalists.)
Three stories in the course of 24 hours.
That’s the state broadcaster. You can’t believe a single word they say. They hate you. They lie to you. They attack you.
And then they send you the bill...
So much for us all having "only 12 years to live"!
