Disturbingly, the establishment press is attacking the Conservatives for questioning Elections Canada, when the media should be holding powerful government institutions accountable.
At its best, the media holds the powerful accountable.
And there’s no institution more powerful than the government.
The government can take our money and take our freedom, and one of the only things standing against that is a media full of free-thinkers willing to challenge those in power.
Unfortunately, Canada’s establishment press often acts like an extension of the government, basically operating as a propaganda machine for the Liberals. While there exceptions to that with some reporters and some stories, the overall trend is clear.
And of course, the Liberals are trying to lock that in even more with their establishment media bailout.
A recent example can be seen in how the Conservatives were attacked by the press for saying Elections Canada is biased.
There were articles published in multiple outlets question ‘why are the Conservatives going after Elections Canada.’
How about because former Conservative MP Dean Del Mastro went to jail for allegedly overspending his own campaign money, but nobody got in trouble when SNC-Lavalin ran what seems to have been an illegal donation scheme – with most of the illegal funds going to the Liberals. Elections Canada didn’t send anyone to jail for that, and didn’t even reveal it to the public. It was hidden for years.
The double standard is clear: One set of rules for regular Canadians like Dean Del Mastro, and another set of rules for well-connected Liberal elites.
Clearly, the system is totally corrupt, yet instead of focusing on that corruption, the establishment press is attacking the Conservatives for bringing up the corruption in the first place.
How messed up is that?
The reality is that Canadians can’t trust Elections Canada. We can’t trust the system. The system has been rigged and skewed against us, and serves only the Liberal elites. So, not only do the Conservatives have to overcome the foreign money following into our country that helps the Liberals, not only do they have to overcome a biased media, they now have to overcome a system that has been corrupted beyond all recognition.
That’s why nothing can be taken for granted, and even with Trudeau polling badly, there is no room for complacency as the election approaches.
