The state broadcaster continues pushing the propaganda narrative of the Trudeau government, and truth is left far behind.
A recent article on CBC News is titled “With all eyes on the U.S. southern border, illegal crossings from Canada quietly increase.
Here’s a key excerpt:
“Mexicans wanting to illegally enter the U.S. are flying over it first, landing in Canada and then walking south across the northern border — sometimes with the help of human smugglers, according to the RCMP and U.S. Border Patrol (USBP).
And the numbers of people doing that are going up, judging by how many people were apprehended for crossing the Canada-U.S. border illegally this year, compared to previous years.
In an area called the Swanton sector, which covers a part of New York State, Vermont and New Hampshire, 121 people were apprehended in the U.S. for crossing illegally from Canada in June, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which oversees the USBP.”
There’s nothing wrong with any of what is written. In fact, it’s perfectly factual.
The problem is how massively it contrasts with the way CBC talks about people illegally entering Canada, something pointed out by Pundit Class on Twitter:
CBC has repeatedly referred to people illegally crossing into Canada as “irregular migrants.”
And yet, when they talk about people illegally entering the United States from Canada, all of a sudden it’s “illegal.”
The hypocrisy is immense.
Crossing into Canada from the United States outside of an official border crossing is illegal. Crossing into the United States from Canada outside of an illegal border crossing is illegal.
It’s the same illegal act.
So why does CBC call it “irregular” when it’s into Canada, but “illegal” when it’s outside of Canada?
To push the Trudeau propaganda narrative.
Early on, the Trudeau government was correctly referring to illegal border crossings as “illegal.” That didn’t last long.
Soon, they began using the term “irregular,” and the CBC has followed.
It’s manipulative propaganda, and it denies the truth of what is really happening. Even government signs at the border still make clear that it’s illegal to cross into Canada outside a designated border crossing, but the government, and their CBC propaganda arm won’t even say it.
We are now at the point where we are paying the state broadcaster to divert us from the truth, and it shows the danger of forcibly making Canadian taxpayers finance government controlled media.
