Fake news comes in many forms.
MB’s Conservative Premier Brian Pallister was accused of skipping out on D-Day celebrations and disrespecting Canadian veterans. Instead, Pallister, who was not scheduled to be at D-day events in the first place was represented by one of his MLAs, a military veteran named Jon Reyes.
As an Albertan, I recognize this level of fake news trickery about a well-meaning conservative as a barometer of a looming election call.
Further east, in Toronto, there was even more media malfeasance. Despite being in the center of the Canadian media universe, it was left nearly exclusively to my colleague David Menzies and Ron East, the publisher of theJ.ca, to report the open anti-Semitism, calls to genocide and for the murder of gay people on the streets of Toronto as part of the annual Al Quds Day march.
Joining me tonight to talk about the latest in Manitoba politics and the latest in the normalization of radical Islamic anti-Semitism on the streets of Canada’s most diverse city, is veteran broadcaster and editor of theJ.ca, Marty Gold.
