Oil Sands/Federal Govt. TV ads

Postby Dave_1963 » Nov 1st, 2012, 5:28 pm

I have noticed in the last month that there are 2 TV commercials that always run consecutively, and I am thinking they are a conflict of interest. First commercial is from Canada's Oil Sands saying how much $$$ they are giving our health-care system (oh, really?), and the 100s of 1000's of jobs they create (another "oh, really?"), then that commercial is immediately followed by a Federal Govt. commercial saying how much they are committed to improving safety standards for tankers/pipelines, and how great and wonderful the project is. Corporate TV ads on a controversial project followed by Govt. ads saying how wonderful and safe the project is, seems to be a conflict of interest to me. I guess if your wallet is fat enough, you can convince the sheeple anything is good!

So where do you actually think the money for health care and other social programs comes from if not from good paying jobs and corporate taxation? Unicorn farts and fairy dust?
You are not stupid, I just think you have bad luck when thinking.

Yes where is the money going to come from after Harper lowers corporate taxes again and continues attacks on good unionized paying jobs?
