Fuck You CBC News Dept!

The real missed opportunity is some balanced news coverage instead of CBC News Departments's usual NDP bashing.

BC's new Premier-Designate hasn't even taken office yet, and least we forget that John Horgan has the small item of 40,000 BCers displaced by forest fires to deal with, that makes staying in BC for the time being a priority for him.

Canada: A Client State

Chrystia Freeland's proclamation that "to rely solely on the U.S. security umbrella would make us a client state,” is both Orwellian and a Trumpian alternative fact reflecting the reality that Canada is in its fourth Harperite term. The proposed 70% increase in defence spending of the Liberal government is aimed at meeting Trump's demand that NATO members increase their defence spending to 2% of their GNP or face his wrath.
