State-owned CBC.ca — The Conservatives are being reported on by the state-owned CBC, which means watch out! And yet it’s shockingly neutral. They don’t call the Conservatives “the Cons” (the word “Conservative” appears 24 times in the report, showing you they CAN do it if they try!), and they didn’t include a photo of their leader Erin O’Toole looking like a total doofus, or “angry,” or “racist,” or anything! They did (rightly) point out his ever-changing platform, as revealed in “the Cons‘” official election platform: “During the Conservative leadership race, O’Toole promised to privatize and “defund” the TV and online division of CBC … In the platform document, however, O’Toole said a government led by him would instead “review the mandate of CBC English television, CBC News Network and CBC English online” and “assess the viability of refocusing the service on a public interest model like that of PBS in the U.S., ensuring that it no longer competes with private Canadian broadcasters and digital providers.” Sounds like another con, actually.
