CBC isn't familiar with the west coast. Good grief!

Everything stops at Justin's stronghold.

You are giving JT 40 IQ points more than he deserves.

Interesting to see the CBC less dainty with the Trudeau Liberals.

Perhaps it's the reporter.
Jorge Barrera is a Caracas-born, award-winning journalist who has worked across the country and internationally. He works for CBC's Indigenous unit based out of Ottawa.
This is one of his stories, and it contains criticism of current news practices:

Ideology...gives evil-doing its long-sought justification and gives the evildoer the necessary steadfastness and determination...[it] is the social theory which helps to make his actions seem good instead of bad in his own and others' eyes...

It's nice to know that opinions in this tread changes like the wind depending on where the hot air is blowing from.

The big problem for the CBC : it is trying to be too many things to too few people.
CBC Radio 1;CBC 2; CBC Radio 3; Gem; plus 2 tv networks...Managed by people who are not media savy, and are focused on political correctness.
Too focused on Trudeau, the Liberals, and those who feel they have been wronged.
Isn't it the same in the U.S.? TV networks supporting their flavour of the month.Many stories that should appear on U.S. networks never do for fear of offending sponsors.
Even the BBC has gone soft on important news.It is funded by a tax.
RT America has some good stuff, but is only one of many. Strangley enough, the press secretary for Joe Biden accuses it of" having a bias" Funny! Don't they all?
By the way, check the bias of the poll questions concerning the CBC.

A CBC ex-spurt. The bar is set very low at the CBC.

Crazy times we live in.

Doctor cited as ‘expert’ by CBC never disclosed large donations to NDP


CBC has claimed that they were unaware that Calgary emergency physician Dr. Joe Vipond was an “NDP supporter” when quoting him as an expert source in numerous articles.

As exclusively reported by True North, Alberta elections finance data revealed that Dr. Vipond has donated nearly $20,000 to the Alberta NDP since 2014.

In an emailed statement, CBC Head of Public Affairs Chuck Thompson addressed Dr. Vipond’s ties.

“In the spirit of full transparency, we didn’t know he was an NDP supporter. We talked to him as a well respected medical professional (for example in the mask opinion piece) and looked to him for that advice and expertise…which is strongly backed by other doctors,” Thompson told True North.

Dr. Vipond has been a vocal and regular critic of Alberta’s ruling UCP government. In one social media post dated July 28, 2021, Dr. Vipond tweeted about “taking to the streets and toppling” Jason Kenney’s government in response to the lifting of quarantine public health orders in the province.

Most recently, Dr. Vipond called for the resignation of Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Deena Hinshaw for her role in the decision to lift the orders and has led several pro-lockdown rallies.

He has also repeatedly denied any association with the Alberta NDP, claiming that he was an “independent practitioner with no ties to the NDP” and that accusing him of being an NDP activist could be “considered slander.”

Of course they did. Justin's instructions to the CBC: "Keep them in the dark."

CBC omitted First Nations bands from industries to be affected by mandatory vaccines


A CBC News report on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s announcement that his government would pursue making vaccines mandatory for federally-regulated industries omitted the fact that the mandate would also apply to First Nations bands and services.

The August 5 CBC article, titled “Trudeau asks top public servant to look into mandatory vaccination for federal workers,” made no mention of First Nations communities when listing impacted groups and sectors.

That's a rather unthinking reach. FN bands are not "industries". Employees of FNs are not federal employees. FNs will make their own decisions.

Your conspiracy theory of the CBC "following Justin's instructions" has more holes than a sieve.
The middle path - everything in moderation, and everything in its time and order.

I guess Liberals have to react BEFORE they read. Assuming they can read, that is.
First Nations band councils and some reserve services are federally regulated.

List of federally regulated industries and workplaces
The Canada Labour Code (the Code) regulates the following industries and workplaces:

Federally regulated private sectors (parts I, II, III and IV of the Code):
air transportation, including airlines, airports, aerodromes and aircraft operations
banks, including authorized foreign banks
grain elevators, feed and seed mills, feed warehouses and grain-seed cleaning plants
first Nations band councils (including certain community services on reserve)
most federal Crown corporations, for example, Canada Post Corporation
port services, marine shipping, ferries, tunnels, canals, bridges and pipelines (oil and gas) that cross international or provincial borders
radio and television broadcasting
railways that cross provincial or international borders and some short-line railways
road transportation services, including trucks and buses, that cross provincial or international borders
telecommunications, such as, telephone, Internet, telegraph and cable systems
uranium mining and processing and atomic energy
any business that is vital, essential or integral to the operation of one of the above activities

Here's what was left out.............context count.
In an email to True North, a CBC spokesperson said the article merely highlighted “some” affected areas.

“The story was a very broad overview of a new proposal, and highlighted some areas but obviously not every area. As this story continues to unfold and policies firm up, we will report on potential impacts where relevant,” CBC spokesperson Chuck Thompson said.
