“It's propaganda from Trudeau!” Toronto reacts to CBC funding poll

David MenziesMission Specialist

A recent Nanos Research poll indicates that the vast majority of Canadians want the CBC’s level of funding to be maintained — or even increased! Is the needle on your BS detector in the red zone, too?

So we ventured out to the streets of Toronto to ask Canadians if they wanted CBC funding maintained or increased. And surprise, surprise... the feedback we received was radically different than what the Nanos poll suggested.

From subscription models to salaries, the people of Toronto had a lot on their minds when it comes to opening the purse strings even wider.

Even membership in a political party gives the subscriber that option.

Make funding of the CBC a prorated and billed invoice….with ENTIRELY voluntary option to renew…or not.

Government jobs are paid for by the taxpayer.
Correct Mark, 2 years ago I couldn’t believe the MSM giving Notley credit for thousands of new jobs. They should have been reporting that the Alberta Government was out of control in their hiring for unnecessary jobs.

Government jobs are paid for by the taxpayer. Why are they included in employment numbers? If it was that beneficial….why not just hire everyone as a bureaucrat?

The woman that said two of her friends work for the CBC, so it’s good for the economy.
WRONG—- – Any Government employee at any level of Government is not good for the economy; in fact any Government job is a TAX INCREASE as they do not produce products like the Private Industry.

Example: Our Mayor hired a 2nd person to take care of the lawns and gardens at City Hall. He did not create a job that would help the City’s economy; he gave the people a tax increase, as the citizens have to pay the new wage through their property taxes.

Where did Nano’s do their poll? In a CBC office?

This survey is insurance for the CBC or so they think, in that when Scheer brings up the call to get the CBC out of the news business, they, the CBC, will bring up this so called survey, into the conversation to prove that Canadian love them and don’t want them to not report the news. Ask yourself, why now? There is no talk of getting rid of the CBC except for on the Rebel. Maybe there are far more Rebel fans out there than we ever thought there were and the CBC is worried sick of what might happen to them. I can see offering up firing Rosemary Barton and retiring Wendy (my god see looks old enough to have been retired for years now).

We should be dumping the cbc in order to save the media in Canada.
There is no way we should be funding them with $1 to $ 2 billion per year and also allowing them to compete for advertising dollars against the private sector.

I can’t believe what I just heard these people say (except for those 2 guys).
But, CTV is just as bad as CBC.

In addition to what I said in my last comment, One of Farage’s main proposals for the future of Britain was and still is “Take control of our own Borders”. He is strongly against the Islamification of the UK as are most of the people.
If You, Ron, could do what Farage has done and all in the space of the six weeks since the Brexit Party was formed, well then, I would admire You, Ron.

[…..] Farage may be a good ticket to get the UK out of the EU but pay attention to who is financing him…………………..

Ron, The conservatives took out a official complaint against Brexit financing and the Brexit accounts were fully examined by government accountants, after seven hours of checking the Brexit accounts were declared to be correct and honest.
The man responsible for major financing in Brexit and who’s books were also checked, is now the Brexit Secretary and also a new MEP.

Every time I hear the “split the vote mantra” from the CPC, I am reminded of a very simple but explanation put forth on YT, by someone titled: Vote Split the Big Lie!

Go Max. Go PPC 2019. The only viable party for real needed change.

Presently, Andrew Scheer is on his way to win a majority in October. I expect (and everyone else should also expect), that there will be no cuts to the CBC whatsoever if Scheer gains power. Scheer will tell the Canadian population what they want to hear. Max will tell them what they need to hear. If Max is able to be at the televised national debates, he can expose to all Canadians that Trudeau is a liar and Scheer is a fraud and neither are fit to govern. But in truth I expect Scheer to win because our population in general wants a bunch of free stuff that the Libs, NDP and Greens are offering and most people will vote for Scheer because they are not politically aware and hate Trudeau; not because of anything Scheer stands for.

Scheer is very similar to Nigel Farage. Farage may be a good ticket to get the UK out of the EU but pay attention to who is financing him. Farage will do nothing about the rampant Islamization of Britain. He is too cowardly to even mention it. The only leader who did call out Islam was Gerard Batten of UKIP and he lost his seat. Farage actually called Tommy Robinson and his followers tattooed thugs. Just like Scheer and his blind followers call Max and the PPC “far right”.

I would be interested to see how Quebec votes in October. They can decide majority or minority status as I believe Ontario will vote majority for Scheer. I have a feeling that the Parti Quebecois will win a lot because Quebecers outside the big cities despise Trudeau and don’t trust Scheer. I am not sure they will vote for Max because he is against the Quebec dairy cartel which employs a lot of Quebecers.

Realistically speaking, there should be four more years of pain for patriotic Canadians and Canada as a nation should sink further into the hole before the population is woke enough for anything to happen to the CBC among many other things in our country which need a complete overhaul.

Crazy idea. I know. Just take the (now) $1.6 billion dollars we give to the CBC every year and put it into reducing the carbon tax. Both do nothing both cost the taxpaying Canadian public more than we should spend, and both are a negative return on the investment. The only thing the CBC gives me of value is Murdock Mysteries, which I was originally watching on Global. Good show but not worth $1.6 billion.

The woman who thought the “National” was a great show: Sorry, its supposed to be news, not entertainment. I gave up on the National over 45 years ago and I haven’t looked back, Now if it was once again a neutral news report then I might tune in, but Hell hasn’t frozen over so there is no chance of that happening, All those poor people she knows working for the CBC… paid at the inflate government rate, heavily unionised, and it takes six or seven of then to do what the private sector can do with two or three,

Enough is enough. Cut it loose. Let it sink or swim on its own. Better yet, sell if off even piece by piece.

Att: Ezra Levant.

We, the members of the RMCSU, Rebel Members of the Comments Section Union, do hereby demand full coverage of the works and words of Maxime Bernier and the PPC. Failure to comply may result in strike action.

Yes LIZA………
Vote for Mad Max and the PPC. He is the only one who makes sense.

People have lost the ability to think, they are incapable of forming opinions in their own minds let alone expressing one to other people. The Marxist educational system has washed their brains well and they have been washing ever since the days of Carl Marx.

The Globalist Theresa May has been has been rejected, now it is Trudeau’s turn.

Think of the money the country would save. Think of how much sweeter the air would smell.
Bernier would do it.
commented 2019-05-27 10:55:12 -0400
Whether anarchy arises naturally – or if it is imposed upon us – as society breaks down and there is rioting and destruction, it would be interesting to see how many at the CBC would be tracked down and…dispatched by angry mobs of Canadians…not to mention what would happen to the rest of the 5 P Professionals…who are responsible for Canada’s destruction!
Of course this is modern day Canada…land of the soy-boy-beta-male…so I guess the criminal scum don’t have to worry about being dragged from their plush taxpayer funded offices and left for dead in the street by a mob of angry Canadians.
Oh Canada…

Trudeau can’t win on a fair election nor can he win on his terrible reputation that’s why the CBC has become his lying machine.As stated below the CBC should be defunded and completely dismantled!!! Garbage news.

I checked CBC on line this am to see how they spun the results of last nights UK election. I could find NO coverage, even with doing a search. The CBC headliner for the day is a
pre election, Liberal approved hit piece on Maxime Bernier and the “nastier side of populism”.
Also nothing on the UK over at Constant Trudeau Vision (ctv).
Tommy Robinson’s campaign message was collectively sabotaged by the mass media, government, social media and even an outfit similar to pay-pal that stopped his ability to fund raise. That is exactly what is openly being orchestrated in Canada on a larger and broader scale by Trudeau and the globalist elites to rig the election. Where the hell is the Opposition to this communist tactic? Regardless of your political affiliation, this type of mass censorship needs to be pushed back against, for the betterment of all.

The Kahdir show is next with a vote liebral segment. It will be about how to keep them in the lifestyle they have become accustom to. Forcing tax payer to pay more and more. Common October.

This government is desperate…and the CBC is their lifeline. When Trudeau’s gone, this network should be completely defunded. No one asked me if I wanted my money to go to this radical propaganda tool.
