  • Liberal Party of Canada propaganda

    And some people wonder why public sentiment is in favour of defunding the CBC… This At Issue columnist is so blatantly anti conservative that she makes the other liberals on the panel ( all of them) seem palatable. Crying about P.P. not giving her fodder for her pro liberal agenda articles at press conferences? Gimme a break. Is there an Indeed job category for Government Propaganda Writers she and Aaron Wherry will soon be searching for?
