I had the misfortune of listening to CBC radio on a drive to PEI on election day. Within an hour, this is what I heard:
* Canada is bad because there are permanent residents who can't vote because they haven't been granted citizenship. They found a Filipino nanny who complained she had lived here for 11 years but didn't get to air her gripes via the ballot box.
* Israel is a bad because settlers killed an innocent person they mistook for a Palestinian terrorist. The Palestinians who go around stabbing people, not so bad.
* Canada is bad because it hassles women wearing nijabs at citizenship ceremonies. The guest speaker, a taxpayer-funded academic, provided a litany of past oath-taking controversies and ended with a faux-apology asking the Muslim lady to forgive us because Canada is bad and we always get things wrong. What he really meant was non-progressives are bad while enlightened progressives feel your pain.
* Canada is bad because it requires photo IDs to vote and this is a hassle for people without photo IDs and, get ready for this… transgendered persons.
All this within a single hour.
The CBC is so drippingly ideological. I wish they would have the decency to acknowledge their bias and insist they have no right to expect others to fund them.
