The CBC craps the bed again. They are just pure scum. And they are sucking our tax dollars to continue to be scum. What evil is inherent in that insipid and disgusting organization.

GUNTER: CBC spin on Smith recording just shows broadcaster's bias

The CBC’s latest “bombshell” about UCP Premier Danielle Smith doesn’t prove what the state broadcaster thinks it proves. Once again, Mother Corp has let its anti-UCP biases convince it that it has a “gotcha” discovery, when in fact it has nothing of the sort.

Wednesday, CBC News revealed it had received a video recording of a conversation between the premier and controversial Calgary street preacher Artur Pawlowski, recorded less than a month before Pawlowski’s trial in early February for COVID-related protests during last winter’s Coutts border crossing blockade.

The CBC seems to think this conversation proves their earlier claim that Smith or her staff attempted to tamper with independent Crown prosecutions of alleged violations of public health restrictions.

It doesn’t.

Does Smith’s side of the conversation show her to be too sympathetic to anti-vaxxers and assorted pandemic extremists? Yes. And does it confirm that at the time (early January), Smith was confusing the terms “senior Justice department bureaucrats” and “independent Crown prosecutors” in her rhetoric (and probably in her mind, too)? Absolutely.

But, if anything, it also shows she understood she could not pressure Justice officials or prosecutors to drop individual charges, rather she was limited to asking a couple of basic questions about the wisdom of moving ahead.

If you’re already predisposed to think Smith is a little wingy when it comes to COVID, the CBC story will confirm that impression. Yet it does not prove she meddled directly in the justice system, not the way, say, Justin Trudeau did when he attempted to pressure his attorney general to give up the prosecution of favoured Montreal engineering firm SNC-Lavalin.

An interesting aside: The CBC makes a point of saying it has “verified” the recording it received.

Why is that important? Because back in January when the CBC last rushed to smear Smith with a claim that one of her staffers had emailed Crown prosecutors directly to pressure them on COVID cases, the public broadcaster later had to admit it had not seen the alleged emails before publishing its anti-Smith scoop. An extensive search of government email archives turned up no such communications.

In the latest video, Smith does admit she’s “very sympathetic” to Pawlowski’s case. That’s cringy. She also agrees with him that “it was a political decision that initiated this.”

Still, here’s where the meddling allegation begins to fall apart. Smith tells Pawlowski that despite the political origins of his charges, “it can’t be a political decision to end it.”

She explains she cannot grant him amnesty. Indeed, she shows she understands she cannot even share her opinion about individual cases with officials because rules “confine” her to only asking questions of the Justice minister and his senior bureaucrats about the reasonable likelihood of convictions and whether going to trial would be in the public interest.

During her chat with Pawlowski, Smith does say she has “almost weekly” conversations with “our prosecutors” about COVID cases, which the CBC insists is “more frequent and specific than she has admitted publicly.”

But I’m not sure how they can make that claim.

This recording is clearly from the time in January when Smith was mixing up senior Justice bureaucrats with Crown prosecutors (a failure of distinction which should be embarrassing to her).

However, it was Smith’s own boast on her weekly radio show during the same timeframe — about speaking with Crown prosecutors “on a regular basis” — that opened this can of worms in the first place. (Smith later stopped confusing Justice officials with prosecutors themselves.)

How is “almost weekly” so different from “on a regular basis” that the CBC now thinks it has some new proof with which to hang Smith?

This is just further biased coverage from the broadcaster funded by our tax dollars.

There are all kinds of stories out of Quebec. The problem is that no one out west bothers to learn french. If they did - they could watch french tv and the news.

This is more in line with what I expect regarding the CBC:

CBC keeps coming to Trudeau's defence over interference scandal​
The CBC’s coverage of the China interference scandal has often been questionable and partisan. Though it’s unsurprising that the organization has chosen to act, yet again, as the Liberals’ state-funded PR wing, its recent decision to platform an apologist for Beijing’s genocide against the Uyghurs is a new low.

Excellent essay from the CBC. Touches on industrial lands. Puts some perspective on the Kelowna Springs area and industrial land needs here in Kelowna.

National Post, March 28th, 2023


Bill, the election interference from Beijing is serious.

Canadians from every political background are calling for an open, independent, public inquiry.

But the Liberals have refused.

Instead, they want to hold secret meetings, with secret evidence, and secret conclusions.

So Trudeau turns around and appoints a close family friend and insider as their “Special Rapporteur” to look into Beijing’s interference in our elections.

This is someone who was a Trudeau Foundation member when they accepted $200,000 from an agent of Beijing.

This family friend, who vacationed with the Trudeaus and had neighbouring cottages in the Laurentians, is their top pick for ensuring “accountability.”

And who is there to help with the cover up and spin Trudeau’s message for him?

The CBC.

Canadians deserve honest journalism that is free and independent from the claws of government.

But year after year, the Liberals hand out more than $1 billion to their state propaganda arm, while hiding behind their glowing coverage.

The time has come to defund the CBC.

Mr. Rice, help make sure it happens.

Pierre Poilievre and our Conservative team will restore a free and independent press.

We will ensure the CBC is no longer able to undercut their private sector competitors.

We will take away the Liberals’ billion-dollar taxpayer-funded propaganda arm.

We will let Canadians have access to an open marketplace of journalism, free from influence by the state.

Help us keep pushing forward to get our message out to Canadians and around the media filter.

Let’s bring it home.

Sincerely,
CPC HQ

I think it is funny when I see idiotic statements about defunding the CBC. Because like everything else the conservatives rail against - they can't legally do what they say. This was proven when Smith made promises that she couldn't keep when she came to power. Maybe the conservatives will do what they did the last time they were in power. They will knee-cap the Phoenix pay system again - and make it a game of not paying public servants.

You're late for work, but you're starving. So you pull into fast food restaurant, but there's 12 cars lined up for the drive-thru. Do you wait in line or run inside to order? Which is faster? And why?

That has to be the stupidest idiotic thing I ever idiotic heard - my tax dollars paying for some CBC idiots to tell me some CBC idiotic things about an idiotic drive-thru, while half of us are overweight, and the stuff in the drive-thru is loaded
with chemical additives.

Did you ever see anything more idiotic than the CBC?

Here's the Liberal agenda the CBC is pushing today.
Illegals are not illegal, they are undocumented. :200:

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/first-pe ... -1.6801857
I was undocumented in Canada for 13 years.
I lived in fear of deportation and was denied basic rights.

No everyone, shed a tear for this poor person who disregarded our laws.

CBC tells her story, pushes the "oh, whoa is me", ignores the fact that she entered Canada ILLEGALLY and expects to be treated as a Canadian.

DEFUND THE CBC.
