One of the roles of an independent media is to hold the Government to account, for the things they say and do. However, that becomes harder — if not impossible — then media outlets are subsidized by those same Governments. One cannot be too critical, without wondering if those handouts will stop. As such, this causes a significant conflict of interest.
1. The Media Is Not Loyal To The Public
Truth is essential in society, but the situation in Canada is worse than people imagine. In Canada (and elsewhere), the mainstream media, periodicals, and fact-checkers are subsidized, though they deny it. Post Media controls most outlets in Canada, and many “independents” have ties to Koch/Atlas. Real investigative journalism is needed, and some pointers are provided.
2. Why People Should Care About This
In several emails sent to various people at Aberdeen Publishing, this was the only person to give any kind of reply. One would have to wonder why serious “journalists” have little interest in information that contradicts the official narrative.
Considering this group just parrots the talking points of Bonnie Henry, a cynic might wonder what strings were attached to the money they received.
- Columbia Valley Pioneer
- Jasper Fitzhugh
- Kamloops This Week
- The Local Weekly
- Merritt Herald
- Peachland View
- Oliver Chronicle
- Osoyoos Times
Not one of these groups is willing to ask the hard questions about what is really going on with this “pandemic”. From the emails above, they are clearly “aware” of many of the topics. Yet, there appears to be no interest in digging into them.
3. Questions They Won’t Address
It would be worthwhile to ask why there is such a push for a vaccine when (by Health Canada’s own numbers), some 90% of people have already recovered.
It would be worthwhile to look into just how rampant lobbying is in Canada
It would be worthwhile to ask why Toronto Public Health conflates people who die “with” this virus and people who die “from” it. These are 2 separate things.
It would be worthwhile to ask why the push for masks everywhere when the World Health Organization admits there’s no evidence they work (see April 6 and June 5 guidance)
It would be worthwhile to ask why the BBC (is that mainstream) reported that mask recommendations were political
It would be worthwhile to ask why BC Transit implemented a mask policy based on “rider feedback” and having “a comfortable ride”
It would be worthwhile to ask why Ontario Deputy Medical Head Barbara Yaffe admits there is a 50% error rate in the PCR tests (see 36:20 in video)
It would be worthwhile to ask why BC Provincial Health Officer Bonnie Henry limited gatherings to 50 people, despite repeatedly saying that “there’s no science behind it”. See 1:00 in the video.
It would be worthwhile to ask why the BC CDC recommends things like: abortion, “glory holes”, alternative sex, porn, masturbation, and general degeneracy at a time when marriages and religious gatherings are restricted
It would be worthwhile to ask why the World Health Organization would say asymptomatic transmission is “very rare” on June 8, and then on June 9 suggest that 6% to 41% of the global population is infected
It would be worthwhile to ask why Theresa Tam also works for the World Health Organization, or why Chrystia Freeland and Mark Carney are Trustees at the World Economic Forum. Certainly major conflicts of interest are worth looking into
It would be worthwhile to ask why the World Economic Forum sees this “pandemic” as a great opportunity to exact larger social changes
It might be worthwhile to ask why Theresa Tam starred in a film about a fake outbreak
All serious questions, all from “official” sources. However, there doesn’t seem to have been any follow-up or pursuit trying to get answers.

It seems strange, that this company could get more in grants from this year than it could from several years COMBINED.
Guess what? When media outlets get Government grants from the Canadian Periodical Fund, it’s not secret. Anyone can dig up that information and publish it.
While some of the grants over the last year are not explicitly “covid relief”, some are. And again, one has to wonder what kind of “understanding” there was, in order to get paid.
5. Aberdeen Grants, Some Screeenshots
As shown in the previous article with Postmedia, it’s staggering just how many “independent” media companies are on the receiving end of Government handouts. It could explain why they are so willing to gaslight critics of Government policies as conspiracy nuts.
