Irony alert: CBC writer complains about “boycott-proof” private sector airlines

David MenziesMission Specialist

I came across Robyn Urback’s opinion piece entitled, “Wouldn’t it be great if Canadians could actually ‘boycott’ an airline?”, the premise being that because air travel in Canada is essentially an oligopoly, there’s no way Canadians can effectively boycott it. 

Now, you may agree with Robyn about the indignities we all suffer when travelling by plane, especially on a discount airline.

But, the fact is, Canadians do have options with airline travel. What's galling is that this is coming from someone who works for the CBC!

Watch as I talk about who Canadians really can’t boycott!

If we’re going to talk about something that really is impossible to pull off, it would be a CBC boycott, because even if you never watched a single minute of it and even if you went out of your way to shun those products and services promoted by their advertisers, guess what?

You’re still supporting the CBC with that annual $1.2 billion welfare cheque whether you like it or not.

CBC provides value.

If you want to boycott the airlines, Greyhound and VIA are both ready to take your business on a minute’s notice.

If all the SNOW FLAKES did not work at the cdc they would have no place to work.

Today, Canada’s Public Broadcaster, the CBC, had an article online with ‘Commenting’ available! WOW! Will wonders never cease?
…and all this for at at least a $Billion-point-something way too much, a year in taxpayer funds.
Here’s the article, and yeah, it’s pure CBC attack-the-right BS:

No surprise, my comment was yet again CENSORED – by the Public Broadcaster – CBC, who rarely ‘allows’ any comments anymore, let alone censoring those comments that challenge the CBC’s spin and lies and sins of omission.
But wait, there’s more, you get all that and really bad TV and you also receive Globalist social engineering, and all for only a $Billion-point-something a year in extorted-at-the-point-of-a-gun, taxpayer funds.
I’d love to see a boycott – or something – anything to shut down the CBC for good and all the CBC Bolsheviks, Apparatchiks, Islamiks and Nogoodniks, wrecking Canada – and all on the taxpayer teat…

So this whore walks into this pub, and she sees this slut sitting at the bar, and the whore says…

If it were not for Murdock Mysteries on the CBC I would have no reason to ever watch that waste of taxpayer funding.

Too bad that Murdock moved from Global. If it had not, CBC would just be another station I would deprogram from my cable box.
