I put my dirty coffee cup on this ad this morning out of disdain for the Sovietness I found myself in.
What kind of government competes against its own citizens in business for profits? Especially in the forum of ideas, and politics, and news generally?
Not one that values freedom. Not one that values small government, and not one that is concerned about the intrusion of ever-growing government into the lives of a less and less free and democratic people. Nor one that favors private enterprise and free-markets and capitalism as a general matter.
ALSO NOTE the co-sponsorship of this ad by a private enterprise company which concerns itself with free enterprise, free markets, and capitalism as a general matter: Bank of Nova Scotia’s “iTRADE” subdivision. Complicit with the state in ruining free enterprise, free markets, and capitalism as a general matter? Yes.
What kind of company would do that? What do you call a situation in which companies become complicit with the government which regulates and licenses them?
You make the call. Are you going to nurture this kind of third-world socialist crap?
Find another broker. And watch CTV’s or Global’s shows, which are private citizen-owned network’s shows, which are forced to compete against the state and its state-owned politics-advocacy shows.
And vote for people who are on your side. On the side of Canada.
