So there’s a newspaper called the Hill Times that’s sold on Parliament Hill, that MPs and Senators and their staff read. It’s a small audience, but obviously an influential one.
Once a year they poll Parliamentary staff — the aides and assistants on the hill. So obviously it tilts towards the governing party, which has the most staff.
Anyways, it’s not a statistically valid poll so much as a fun yearbook-style vote for which MP is the sexiest.
But they ask this one question each year, and it’s really weird:
“Which talking head would you most like to silence?”
You’re asking political staff to daydream about silencing the press? Isn’t that a bit, you know, illiberal. Maybe even fascist?
But, yeah, shocker: I won.
And not for the first time, either.
Look, I know this is a goofy survey. But when you ask Liberal staffers who they’d like to silence, and they say me — the leader of a small Internet news network, you aren’t getting a joke answer.
I truly believe that before the end of the term of Justin Trudeau, Rachel Notley and Kathleen Wynne, one of those governments will prosecute us for our opinions.
I don’t want that.
But they sure seem to.
