Re: Radio-Canada bonuses? Why? Letter, July 27

In a recent letter to the editor, a writer pointed out the huge sums of taxpayers’ money that went to Radio-Canada for having accomplished so little, an opinion that I share. To my surprise, the publisher made a general statement that countries need a national broadcaster. I can’t speak for other countries, but can someone explain to us why Canada, in particular, needs Radio-Canada?

We all know that Radio-Canada is funded by taxpayers’ money. We all understand that this national broadcaster supports the political party that gives it the most money when it is in power. It’s no secret that a Liberal government is historically more generous than a Conservative government when it comes to spending the people’s money to fatten state television.

Consequently, Radio-Canada supports and promotes the Liberals when they form government and undermines the Conservatives when they are in power. As logical as this practice is, their total lack of objectivity only reinforces the argument for the dismantling of the CBC, Radio-Canada and their affiliates. How many good and honest charities could you support with $1.4 billion?

So why do Canadians need Radio-Canada? They don’t! Only the Liberals and their supporters need this national broadcaster. What the rest of Canada needs are independent broadcasters with genuine journalists giving you the real news.



(Good manners dictate that we remain silent on this one.)

Remember our PM is an arts graduate, not a math major. Also, most of the « West » tends to vote Conservative. They must be punished. What’s better than carbon taxes and climate blame?

The solution that would capture his and Greenhouse Guilbeault’s attention would be for our western oil and gas companies, with the unofficial approval of their provincial governments, to drastically limit shipments to eastern Canada (primarily Ontario and Quebec), much like Russia does. To Germany.

PS Better stock up on firewood and Canada Goose jackets. Oh rats! Use of wood and feathers. Is it ecologically insensitive?

Subject: Drake defends 14-minute flight from Toronto to Hamilton, online edition, July 27

Drake is a climate criminal? So he uses his private jet to get from TO to Hamilton? Come on, he’s priced in the sky, plus he’s just returned from the south of France after using a $660,000-a-week luxury yacht as a crib. Seriously!

Our PM prince has been traveling the world for nearly seven years at our expense to attend the opening of an envelope. It deserves the beloved Swedish battle cry of social justice and climate change warriors: “How dare you!”

Carbon taxes? Justin’s time, apparently.



(We think the GO train would have been faster, anyway.)


Given Justin Trudeau’s need for attention, I’m surprised he didn’t have a photo op with him sitting on the Pope’s lap. No doubt he would keep a wish list of things he wanted the Pope to grant him. It’s a safe bet that a new assortment of garishly colored « holy » socks would top the list.



(Soon to be trending TikTok, no doubt.)
